We were joined this week with Juana and Estela Mata from Looms For Lupus. They have spent over 10 years advocating for the Lupus and chronic illness community. Part of their advocacy has including proclamations in their local areas. They help their support group members submit proclamations, and have become quite the experts in helping others with proclamations. Juana really enjoys the process and has become great friends with the city clerks in the process.
We put together this video for you to help guide you through the process. We also have included a step-by-step guide on our Proclamations page HERE. Join us in celebrating Fibromyalgia, Lupus, and Mental Health Awareness Month this month. We also encourage others to submit their proclamations. May is a big month for Awareness and it also includes ME/CFS, EDS, and Lyme. Feel free to reach out if you need assistance. It’s important we raise our voices this May!
