Wyoming--Fighting for Freedom in Wyoming

Dear HSLDA members and friends:

For 21 years, the Home School Legal Defense Association has sent
lawyers into courtrooms to protect family freedoms. Our "legal
defense" has helped make homeschooling possible in all 50 states. As
everyone knows, however, the best defense is a good offense. In
Wyoming, homeschoolers are moving onto the political offense.

HSLDA made news this year by forming Generation Joshua, a nationwide
movement of teen activists who are committed to electing freedom
loving representatives. Wyoming took another step in this initiative
when it formed the "Young Patriots" organization this year, which is
dedicated to the same goal. These teens are committed to do their
part in preserving the blessings of liberty for ourselves and our

Wyoming homeschoolers need to get organized this fall because Senator
Kathryn Sessions has announced her intention to use the next long
legislative session to "crackdown" on homeschoolers. The 2004
legislative season was a 20 day whirlwind of danger and opportunity.
Wyoming homeschoolers proved themselves the most committed lobbyists
in Cheyenne, even though many families knew little about the
legislative process at the start of the session. HSLDA encourages
every Wyoming homeschooler to get all the training possible to prepare
for the 2005 session.

One training opportunity is the "Family Values Legislative Training
Conference" on October 22-23 in Cheyenne. The Wyoming Family Coalition
and WyWatch are hosting this event at:

The Little America Hotel and Resort
2800 West Lincolnway
Cheyenne, WY, 82009.

Registration begins Friday at 4 p.m. and features speakers such as
Representative Michael Baker, Cheyenne Mayor Jack Spiker, and
Representative Bob Brechtel.

For more information, contact Becky Vandeberghe at
Phone: (307) 547-3785

Homeschoolers who become active in October can make a difference on
election day in November. Representatives who have been elected with
homeschool help in the fall are more likely to stand up for homeschool
freedoms when the legislature goes to work next winter. Your
participation today preserves our liberty tomorrow.

-> What do you look like when you get out of bed?

It's hard to look our best all the time. HSLDA works to present
homeschooling in an engaging, dynamic, and informative light to
the public news media.
