Lupus Awareness Advocacy Partnership
May is Lupus Awareness Month. The centerpiece of Lupus Foundation of Northern California’s Lupus Awareness Month activities is a trip to Sacramento for the presentation of state legislative proclamation of Lupus Awareness Month, and a training on legislative and patient advocacy. A coalition of lupus-focused organizations from across the state of California led by will come together in Sacramento in May for two purposes: presentation of state legislative proclamation of Lupus Awareness Month, and a training on legislative and patient advocacy.
Coalition partners who have joined us in the recent past include: Lupus LA, the Lupus Foundation of Southern California, the Howse Foundation and the We Win Foundation. We expect a similar coalition to send representatives this year.
In 2018, Assemblymember David Chiu of San Francisco and State Senator Bob Wieckowski of Fremont have agreed to sponsor Lupus Awareness Resolutions in their respective houses, and both offices have set a tentative date of April 30 for the presentation.
