Because of the COVID-19 pandemic Lupus Detroit’s main fundraising events – The Lupus Detroit Brunch in May and the Walk for Warriors in the fall have been canceled but the work continues.
Sharon Harris, Lupus Detroit Founder/Executive Director, talks about how the organization continues to provide support for warriors including virtual meetings and webinars, and introduces another phenomenal Lupus Warrior Kalyn Risker Fahie.
Kalyn is not only a Lupus Warrior but also a survivor of domestic violence. After escaping her abusive relationship she went on to found SAFE - Sisters Acquiring Financial Empowerment - to equip survivors of domestic violence with the appropriate financial tools and resources needed to enable women to leave or recover from the economic portion of domestic violence.
In 2015 she married and moved to St. Thomas in the US Virgin Island but continued to run SAFE long-distance with the assistance of a group of dedicated volunteers. 
In 2016 she joined The Virgin Island Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Council as program liaison. The Council is a leader of the Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Awareness cause.
She still visits Detroit regularly for SAFE and to support her Lupus Warrior family.
