Kaleidoscope Fighting Lupus has set a number of goals to improve advocacy for and outreach to lupus patients.

Here they are:

  • Raise funds to fight lupus through corporate and individual donations, grants, and fundraising events.

  • Build a complimentary network of nonprofit orgainzations, government agencies, and community organizations.

  • Create safe, supportive local communities where lupus patients can share information, refer service providers, and provide one another support.

  • Connect lupus patients through a virtual community that includes our lupus blog, active social network sites like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and You Tube, as well as our lupus referral network.

  • In an effort to be better advocates for the lupus community, ask lupus patients about their needs through our online surveys.

  • Engage the medical community, including drug and insurance companies, to spur changes in treatment and diagnosis through outreach and recruiting of medical professionals and the insurance industry representatives and working with educational institutions to include lupus studies in their course offerings.
