Kansas Homeschoolers Ready to Impact the State Capitol

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


Dear HSLDA members and friends:

The Home School Legal Defense Association urges all Kansas
homeschoolers to fill the statehouse in Topeka on January 20 to make a
powerful statement about homeschool freedom.

The "Day Under the Dome" event is a terrific opportunity to meet the
people who influence legislation that affects us and remind them that
thriving home school families from every corner of the state continue
to be actively involved in the governmental process.

We encourage you to call your senator and representative and set up an
appointment to meet with them (or one of their aides) or have lunch
together to build a relationship that can help protect our freedom. A
catered box lunch will be provided at no cost for lawmakers and aides
who accept your invitation.

Your message to your lawmakers is simple: Thank you for protecting
homeschool freedom. As they observe all around them the impressive
results of homeschooling--the displays, the speeches, the music, the
mature behavior of your children--they will understand why you are
committed to home-based education, and why it is worth protecting.
Your time will be well-spent even if their schedules only permit them
to have five minutes with you.

If your senator or representative (or their aide) agree to meet with
you, they may ask your children how they like being homeschooled.
Help your children think through some questions they might be asked
and some answers they might give that help express why homeschooling
is worth protecting. If you are asked a question to which you do not
know the answer, don't guess. Just tell them you will get back with an
answer shortly and contact HSLDA or an event leader for guidance.

Legislators sometimes ask what they can do to help homeschoolers.
Since accepting government help often leads to the loss of freedom in
the end, we do not want to ask for favors. We merely want to ask the
lawmakers to protect the freedom to educate our children at home.

The main events will ocurr between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. To find out how
your students can participate in speech, music or as a Home School
Ambassador, contact Kent Vincent at (785) 234-0022 or akvlaw@cox.net .

Or contact Cornerstone Family School, the event host, at (785)
234-0330. The sponsor is Christian Home Educator's Confederation of
Kansas (CHECK).

To find the name of your Delegate or Senator to set up an appointment,
go to our legislative toolbox at http://www.hslda.org/toolbox .

A separate important event, Kansas Family Issues Forum, will be
conducted Friday evening and Saturday morning (Jan. 20-21) in the
Topeka Holiday Inn Holidome. For registration information contact
c.j.bainum@sbcglobal.net .

Sincerely,


Scott A. Woodruff
HSLDA Staff Attorney
