Event Details

Join the Lupus Foundation of America, NJ an Philadelpia Tri-State Chapters, along with fellow advocates from all across the state of New Jersey                 to speak on behalf of those affected by lupus!  

 

The New Jersey and Philadelphia Tri-State Chapters of the Lupus Foundation of America are partnering to hold a New Jersey Lupus Advocacy Day on Thursday, March 27, 2014.  Lupus advocates from around the state of New Jersey will have the opportunity to meet with their elected state representatives to educate them both about lupus and public policies impacting the lupus community.

Why Attend New Jersey Advocacy Day?  Lupus is one of the cruelest, most mysterious diseases on earth, yet lupus research and resources remain underfunded relative to its scope and devastation.  We need everyone to help make lupus awareness a top priority at the state’s capital. 

Join us to…

  • Learn more about the resources provided throughout the state;
  • Share your needs with us;
  • Meet with your State Senator and Representative and let them know that lupus matters to you andask for their help in the fight against lupus.

Whether you are already part of the fight against lupus or looking to get involved, this is your opportunity to help rally support, educate our leaders in the state and provide new hope to those living with lupus.
