Join HSLDA for Free--and Defend Parent's Rights

Friends of Homeschooling,

Parental rights are under attack. If you've been receiving our emails
for very long, you've seen it, too: there is an almost continuous
barrage of challenges to parental control of our own children.
Wouldn't it be nice to have this issue resolved so that we can feel
secure in our parental liberties?

HSLDA has done much to secure educational freedoms for homeschoolers.
However, we recognize that educational freedoms are only as secure as
our rights as parents. Therefore, we are helping to spearhead an
effort that will expressly protect our parental rights--so they are
secure for generations to come.

Our goal is to begin a push for an amendment to the U.S. Constitution
that will secure the God-given right of parents to direct the
upbringing of their children. Homeschoolers alone cannot make this
happen, we know. However, we can be at the core of a movement to
secure liberty for parents all across this country. And the bigger
voice we have, the easier it will be for us to be heard.

Therefore, we are asking you to consider becoming an active member of
HSLDA. As an incentive to give membership a try, for a limited time,
we are offering a free trial membership. If you join by May 15, you
will be granted a free trial membership that's good until August 15,

This opportunity to apply for a free membership is short; just two
weeks remain until May 15. So please don't delay.

Families who become members under our trial offer receive all the
benefits of membership--through August 15. Of course, you will be
able to renew after this trial membership period.

We know the battle for parental liberties will not be short, so we do
encourage you to think of membership as an investment in our future.
Please take a few minutes to complete an application and join with us.
Together, we can prevail!

PS. You are welcome to forward the link below to at least three
friends (not currently members) and encourage them to join with us in
the cause of securing parental liberties for all of us. To access our

-> Who are the nation's best lobbyists?

We don't know that this has ever been determined; but we do know
that HSLDA's National Center for Home Education is the only
national organization lobbying on behalf of homeschoolers on
Capitol Hill.
