Advocates and Ambassadors

Your voice is needed! A Lupus Advocate is likely to:

  • attend meetings in Albany and/or Washington DC;
  • send emails and letters and make phone calls to local, state and federal representatives;
  • share information and address healthcare issues within their own communities.

As an Ambassador, you serve as an essential link between LAUNY and your community by:

  • sharing your insight and expertise on the needs and opportunities of your community;
  • suggesting local and regional partners that may help extend LAUNY's program reach;
  • sharing information about the impact of autoimmune disease with local business and community leaders and community groups.

The Lupus Alliance of Upstate New York directs and supports all Advocates and Ambassadors with timely information and opportunities. To learn more, contact Judith Christian by email at or call (800) 300-4198, Ext. 1.
