National Action Alert--Correction

From the HSLDA E-lert Service...

Home School Legal Defense Association would like to inform our
members of an error in our previous alert about the Convention on the
Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women. Senator
Joseph Biden's phone number is incorrect and belongs to another US
Senator. You can reach Chairman Biden at 202-224-5042. We apologize
for the inconvenience.


Please call your U.S. Senator listed below with the following
message: "Vote NO on the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms
of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW). This treaty undermines the
American family." HSLDA is only targeting the Senators on the
following committee. If your Senator is not on the Foreign Relations
Committee (listed below), please contact the Chairman (Joseph Biden).
It is not necessary to identify yourself as a home schooler.

Future action may include a request to call the entire U.S. Senate.
