Virginia--Senator Allen Votes Against CEDAW

----------------------------------------------------------------------
From the HSLDA E-lert Service...
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

Today, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee passed the United
Nation's Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination
Against Women (CEDAW) by a vote of 12 to 7. We are pleased that
Virginia Senator George Allen voted against the treaty. It is our
understanding that the Senator received over 1000 calls yesterday and
we believe that this helped him make the right decision.

The Senate will adjourn later this week for a summer break and return
in September. Senator Joseph Biden (Foreign Relations Committee
Chairman) has stated he will push for a full Senate vote on CEDAW
before the end of the year. We will keep you informed as this issue
progresses.

Many thanks to all who took the time to call Senator Allen. Your
calls assuredly made a difference.

Sincerely yours,

Tom Washbourne
Director, National Center for Home Education
