Because of you, whether you shared or retweeted facts about lupus, held educational events in your community, joined a Walk to End Lupus Now™, or simply wore purple and told people why, more people than ever learned about lupus during the month of May than ever before.
Thanks to all of you, we:
- Reached more than 2 million people weekly with lupus facts, graphics and other educational content
- Educated more than 1,000,000 people about the signs and symptoms of lupus through our popular body infographic (right) on Facebook alone. See the full-sized version.
- Had the highest monthly traffic on our website (lupus.org) in the history of the organization
- Gathered more than 30,000 signatures on the petition to Congress asking them to support more lupus research
