Lupus is a devastating autoimmune disease lupus that widely affects people of diverse cultures. Some 70% of all people with lupus are people of color. However, rather than divide us, the Lupus Foundation of America, Pacific Northwest Chapter, believes that lupus can be a unifying force to build bridges across cultural barriers.
This family-friendly event, “The Many Shades of Lupus” will do just that.
“The Many Shades of Lupus” will be held from 1 – 4 pm on Saturday, May 31st at the beautiful Asia Pacific Cultural Center, located at 4851 South Tacoma Way, Tacoma, WA.
There will be talks about lupus research and treatments by notable regional physicians, as well as outstanding presentations by local ethnic performing groups, and music by the Tacoma-based rock band, “The Rallies.” We'll serve complimentary ethnic bites and beverages. You will be wowed by our enticing silent auction items and raffle prizes!

When & Where
Lupus Education and Awareness Committee
Our mission is to spread awareness about lupus and educate all about this chronic, incurable disease. Lupus is one of the most cruelest, most mysterious diseasess on earth--it strikes without warning, has unpredictable, sometimes fatal symptoms, lasts a lifetime, and has no know cause and no know cure. It's more pervasive than people think, and impacts people on a scale that the public does not realize.
