2021 Digital Advocacy Summit
There is nothing more important to us at the Lupus Foundation of American than the health and safety of our community. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, that means we won’t be able to come together in Washington, DC this March for the annual National Lupus Advocacy Summit. But we know that advocating for people with lupus is more important now than ever, and that’s why we are so excited to announce the second-ever Digital Lupus Advocacy Summit!
From March 2-4, 2021, join thousands of your fellow lupus advocates in an immersive, experiential online environment to make an enormous difference in the fight against lupus.
The Summit is the keystone of our comprehensive advocacy program that has generated more than $615 million in federal funding for lupus research and education in the last five years alone.
During the first two days of the Summit, you’ll hear from the leading lupus researchers about the latest breakthroughs (and those soon to come!), as well as interact with experts in the field about lupus advocacy, care, and support. On the final day, participate in virtual meetings with your members of Congress to tell the lupus story and urge them to support policies to improve the lives of everyone affected by lupus.
We were one of the first organizations to hold an entirely digital advocacy event in 2020, bringing together nearly 3,000 lupus advocates on less than one week’s notice. And in 2021, we have even bigger plans – we hope you’ll join us for this monumental event.
