“Call-In to Congress” on Tuesday, March 3, and Make Your Voice Heard – More Money is Needed for Lupus Research.
Posted Mar 03 2009 2:18pm
Fifty years is too long to wait for safer, more tolerable and effective FDA-approved lupus treatments. Help the estimated 1.5 million Americans living with lupus by being a part of the "Call-In to Congress" component of the Lupus Foundation of America’s 11th Annual Advocacy Day on March 3, 2009.
Simply go online to the LFA's advocacy action center located at http://www.capwiz.com/lfa, and click on the link called "Call your Members of Congress Tuesday, March 3rd!" Then, you’ll enter your zip code and get the phone numbers for your elected officials.
The other thing you will notice after you’ve entered your zip code, is that you will also see a guide of Talking Points for when you speak with Congressional Staff. Use these talking points to tell them how having lupus or knowing someone with lupus has affected your life.
