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;
