Generation Joshua - Making a Difference in New York

Dear HSLDA members and friends:

Thousands of homeschoolers attended the Loving Education at Home
conference in Syracuse last weekend. We gathered to celebrate LEAH's
20 years of faithful service to homeschooling--and to stand up for
liberty for the next generation. Nearly one thousand individuals
stood and committed themselves to protest the unjust policies of the
New York State Board of Regents. Many promised to help us fight for
justice in the Empire State. Now I need your help!

New York is the only state in the union that systematically treats
homeschoolers like dropouts. Homeschooled students who have been
admitted to degree programs have been kicked out. Others have been
prevented from entering. Still others have been denied a degree. The
Home School Legal Defense Association has filed suit to correct these
injustices, but a battle this big needs to be fought on more than one
front. That's why HSLDA started Generation Joshua.

As a constitutional lawyer, my job is to represent the legal rights of
individual citizens. I've spent many years fighting for justice for
homeschoolers. The time has come for a new generation of
homeschoolers to fight for justice outside the courtroom. New York
needs freedom-loving teens who will help elect legislators who believe
in equal justice for all. We need you to join Generation Joshua.

HSLDA started Generation Joshua to raise up a new generation of
homeschool activists who will carry freedom forward. The program is
designed for homeschooled teens ages 14-18 but is open to any person
who believes that this generation can make a difference in saving our

Today, the New York Assembly basically ignores homeschoolers.
Generation Joshua can fix that problem--forever. Mobilize enough
teens and get them involved in political races, and the politicians
will be standing in line to find ways to help homeschoolers.
Generation Joshua is the way to make it happen. Please have your
teens join Generation Joshua today!

"When I called Liberty to find out what kind of discount we could
get, they told us we would 10% off our car insurance and 5% off
our homeowner's insurance. What we will save is more than double
what it costs to join HSLDA. With one child getting his driver's
license this year, the savings will be a real blessing!"
