I am in Utah in the U.S.
We have a local chapter of LFA, but,that's about it. The local chapter is trying to become more and more active, and bring attention to itself and Lupus through community outreach, and they have monthly get togethers at a restaurant in the Salt Lake City area.
For me, there isn't anything in my community. I live too far from the Utah Chapter of LFA to participate in the monthly gatherings, and I don't know anyone in this area that wants to meet or otherwise support each other, so, I find my support mostly online, especially here.
My daughter is competing for our city queen title on a Lupus Awareness platform, and if she gets the title, she will have the city's help and support in promoting that awareness in our area, as well as, going onto the state competition and if she gets the title of Miss Utah, she will have statewide attention for the cause. Miss Utah then goes onto the Miss America competition, so, perhaps she will be able to bring national attention to the cause that way. It all depends on how the local pageants go.
