Alaska--Calls Needed Before 8:30 a.m. to Support Marriage Amendment

February 16, 2006

Dear HSLDA members and friends:

We have just received word that at 8:30 this morning the Senate
Judiciary Committee is going to consider a proposed amendment to the
Alaska Constitution which would prohibit homosexual unions similar to
marriage. Homosexuals and others who oppose this amendment are waging
a fierce lobbying effort to defeat this legislation. Members of the
Alaska Senate and House of Representatives need to know that
homeschooling families support this legislation.

The Alaska Constitution currently defines marriage as between a man
and a woman. This resolution would amend the Constitution to state
that a marriage between a man and a woman is the only union recognized
by the state, thereby prohibiting civil unions or domestic
partnerships between homosexuals.

The House version of this bill is House Joint Resolution 32. When
contacting members of the House of Representatives, please refer to
this bill instead of the Senate version.

Please join in this fight to preserve the traditional definition of
marriage and family in Alaska. Contact members of the Senate Judiciary
Committee right now!

Action Requested:

(1) Please call (no time to write) as many members of the Senate
Judiciary Committee as possible with this message:

"Please support Senate Joint Resolution 20 which would prohibit
homosexual unions and preserve traditional marriage between one man
and one woman."

The contact information for members of the Senate Judiciary Committee
is as follows:

Sen. Ralph Seekins (R), Chairman
(907) 465-2327
