    being originally from Michigan the lupus foundation of Michigan switched affiliation from LFA to Lupus Alliance around 10 years ago. I now live in Colorado ant there is neither the LFA or the Lupus Alliance. there is, however The Lupus Foundation of Colorado. I was told that the LFC will not associate with the LFA because of all the red tape and politics. Personally, I prefer the Lupus Alliance over the LFA.
