I'm posting this email that I received today from the Lupus Foundation of America. It's an opportunity to participate in helping Lupus Research & Awareness. The link also gives you more information about these proposed amendments. (I haven't read them yet, so this isn't an endorsement!)

Help Enact the Lupus REACH Amendments of 2007 (H.R. 1192)

The REACH Amendments will increase lupus research, support vital lupus epidemiology studies and data collection, and authorize programs to heighten public and professional awareness of lupus.

We need YOU to take immediate action to help this legislation become law. Please go to to send a letter to your U.S. Representative urging him/her to co-sponsor the Lupus REACH Amendments of 2007. (If you would like, you can modify and personalize the letter.)

Please also encourage your friends, neighbors, family and co-workers, to visit the web site to send a letter to their United States Representative asking him or her to co-sponsor this important lupus legislation. We need as many people as possible to join this campaign to increase federal support for lupus research and awareness. With your help we can pass the Lupus REACH Amendments into law.
