Nebraska Christian Home Educators Association (NCHEA) Legislative Day

Dear HSLDA members and friends,

On January 17, 2007, the Nebraska Christian Home Educators Association
(NCHEA) is sponsoring a Legislative Day in Lincoln, Nebraska, at the
Statehouse. We will meet from noon to 4:30 p.m. in Lincoln to watch
hearings, meet senators, and learn about the legislative process. A
detailed schedule is included below. Family members of all ages are
welcome and the event is free.

Please contact NCHEA Legislative Day Coordinator Deb Badeer at to schedule your meeting with your senator and
obtain all of the information you need for the day. NCHEA is taking
care of all of the details so that you will be thoroughly prepared to
spend a few minutes talking to your senator and have great information
to educate your children about the Unicameral.

During each session of the Unicameral, NCHEA monitors bills, hearings,
and debates that impact your parental rights. We expect more than 900
bills to be introduced this year. It is our goal to work with the
NCHEA to educate senators about your inherent right to homeschool and
the benefits of homeschooling.

This day is important as we work to build relationships with senators
and maintain your liberties. I hope you will join us!


Michael P. Donnelly, Esq.
HSLDA Staff Attorney

-> Have you ever yelled into the wind, only to hear the sound of your
voice blown back at you?

It's hard to be heard in the midst of a storm. Trying to influence
federal legislation is much like yelling to be heard while
standing in a fierce wind. Yet when 80,000 voices join together,
they become a powerful force that cannot be drowned out.
Join HSLDA to be heard above the tempests that threaten homeschool
