We are excited to announce the launch of our Young Leadership Committee. This program aims to increase and promote EB awareness by training and mobilizing volunteers around the United States to educate others about the disease. The Young Leadership Committee is an affiliate group of debra of America, comprised of individuals 35-and-under who host and participate in debra Local Events across the country and whose mission is to fundraise and spread awareness of Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) – The Worst Disease You've Never Heard Of.™

Wear butterfly wings for an hour - or just a few moments - to raise awareness about Epidermolysis Bullosa. Post a photo of you (and friends!) in wings to Facebook or Instagram. Learn More

debra Advocacy Program
There are many ways to help those affected by Epidermolysis Bullosa. One of the most effective ways is to make our community better for those affected by Epidermolysis Bullosa in the long term is legislative advocacy on their behalf. Quite simply, this means supporting laws and policies that are good for those affected by Epidermolysis Bullosa and opposing ones that aren’t.
