Virginia--'Day at the Capitol' in Richmond February 13

Dear HSLDA members and friends,

On February 13, the Home Educators Association of Virginia is
sponsoring a "Day at the Capitol" in Richmond, Virginia, with
re-enactments, tours, and other fun and educational events especially
designed for homeschool students.

We at the Home School Legal Defense Association believe it is very
important for as many homeschool families to attend as possible.
Nearly every year there is harmful legislation to fight or pro-home
school freedom bills to pass.

In our 24 years at HSLDA, I have seen how effective capitol lobby days
are in preventing bad legislation or enacting good law. If a
legislator from either party meets a good homeschool family
face-to-face, it makes it hard for him or her to vote to restrict
homeschooling. If they never meet a homeschooler, they will often vote
against homeschooling when given the opportunity.

In addition to protecting your freedom, the "Day at the Capitol" is an
opportunity for a field trip for your children to learn about our
government and how laws are made.

This popular event will help bring history alive, especially the
centrality of our forefathers' pursuit of ordered liberty. Important
aspects of the operation of our state government will be explained,
with an opportunity to observe the General Assembly via closed circuit
television. There will be a discussion of important bills and meetings
with your elected officials.

For registration information, and more details about this valuable
opportunity to learn about our government, go to:

Plan ahead and make an appointment with your legislators. Take
advantage of this opportunity. Don't miss this year's great event!

Sincerely Yours,

Scott A. Woodruff
HSLDA Staff Attorney

-> Can you look at the clouds and tell the direction of the wind?

An interesting phenomenon of wind is that it can blow in multiple
directions at the same time, at different heights from the ground.
But usually there is a prevailing wind. HSLDA watches the gusts
and monitors the prevailing trends of change in the legal climate
of home education. So no matter which way the wind is blowing,
we're there to protect your family.
