Join the Lupus Foundation of America (LFA) in Washington, DC on March 10-11, 2008 for the LFA's annual Lupus Advocacy Day.
Advocates and LFA members will travel together to Capitol Hill to meet with Members of Congress. Our goal is to personally inform them how debilitating lupus can be, and urge them to allocate more funds for lupus research and education. Bring your friends and family. The more representation we have, the stronger the message we can send to Congress. Your participation in our 2008 Lupus Advocacy Day affects the decisions made by our legislators. Members of Congress are greatly influenced by the personal stories of their constituents.
The LFA 2007 Lupus Advocacy Day brought 350 participants from 31 states who met with 146 legislators. We expect the 2008 Lupus Advocacy Day to be even more influential. Together we will help people who are affected by this debilitating disease!
