How You Can Help

With your help, Lupus LA can stay strong, help people with lupus—and find better treatments and a cure.

Stay Informed

Come to an Event

We have a lot going on at Lupus LA, from small monthly support groups to big educational programs and exciting fundraisers. You show support just by coming!

Visit our events page to see what’s coming up! 

Volunteer Your Time and Energy

Volunteers are crucial to us: they help keep our office organized and our fundraisers and support groups working well. If you have the time to help out—a little or a lot—and live in southern California, fill out this form and a member of our staff will contact you.

If you live somewhere else—please see this list for a lupus organization in your area where you can volunteer!

Participate in a Clinical Trial

New treatments and a cure can only happen if people with lupus (and sometimes their family or friends) take part in clinical trials. Find out more at LupusTrials.org. For a listing of lupus trials currently recruiting in the L.A. area, click here.

Help Educate

Distribute lupus brochures and fact cards in your neighborhood or city. Try doctor’s offices (adult and pediatric), hospital waiting rooms, wellness centers, and so forth. Let us know and we’ll get you the materials! Contact us at 310-657-LOOP (5667) or email info@lupusla.org.

Spread Awareness

Lupus LA has two fashion-forward ways to show your commitment to our mission of finding a Life Without Lupus. Order a pack of our bright orange wristbands at 10 for $10 and share them with your friends, coworkers, classmates, and family members. Or for a $100 donation, you can sport our orange leather wrap bracelet, available only from Lupus LA.

Run with Us!

We're an official charity partner of the LA Marathon, which debuted its new "Stadium to Sea" route in March 2010. Start at the home of the Los Angeles Dodgers and finish 26.2 miles later at the beautiful Santa Monica Pier, all while boosting awareness and support for lupus research and support services. Our 2010 team raised more than $60,000—and had a lot of fun doing it! Join our 2011 team and help us set a new record. Email ereyes@lupusla.org.
