Home School Legal Defense Association
Wyoming--Preparing for Next Legislative Season

From the HSLDA E-lert Service...

August 1, 2003

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

Wyoming homeschoolers are bracing for next year's legislative season,
due to statements made by state senator Katherine Sessions. Senator
Sessions introduced three bad bills in 2003, including one to
regulate and control homeschooling. She has promised to introduce
more homeschool legislation next year. Many of our member families
have asked what they can do to defend homeschool liberty next
January. One important step is to train teenagers to be effective
homeschool lobbyists. Homeschool kids can get our message across
better than anyone.

Cheryl Nichols of Homeschoolers of Wyoming is working to develop a
network of homeschool activists in and around Cheyenne. She has
invited Blaine Cochran of Tools for Life, to provide "worldview
training" for homeschooling teens. Tools for Life is offering a ten-
dollar discount for HSLDA members who attend.

The Tools for Life Worldview Camp is scheduled to take place
September 17-19, 2003 at the Cheyenne Evangelical Free Church, 7006
N. College Drive, Cheyenne, Wyoming, 82009. For local details on this
camp, contact Cheryl Nichols at 307-631-6161, or contact Tools for
Life directly at 706-340-5739.

Another way to prepare for next year's legislative season is to work
with the Cheyenne area homeschoolers who are networking for lobbying
purposes. If you live in the Cheyenne area or know another
homeschooler who does, please contact Becky Vandeberghe at By working together, Wyoming homeschoolers
can preserve their liberties next year.

Very truly yours,

Scott W. Somerville
HSLDA Staff Attorney
