Indiana--Needed: Your Attendance at
the Home School Day at the Capitol

Dear HSLDA members and friends,

Indiana Association of Home Educators (IAHE) invites all
home-educating families to its Home School Day at the Capitol on
Monday, February 12, 2007.

IAHE has organized a day for homeschool families to visit the Capitol
and their legislators. One of the most important aspects of civic
engagement is knowing how to contact elected leaders. This event will
start with an orientation and legislative briefing and a tour of the
State House in the morning. At noon there will be a rally with
opportunities for you to visit with you state senator and
representative in the afternoon.

We at the Home School Legal Defense Association believe it is very
important for as many homeschool families to attend as possible. In
our nearly 25 years of existence, HSLDA has seen how effective capitol
lobby days are in preventing bad legislation. If legislators from
either party meet a good homeschool family face to face, it makes it
hard for them 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 Home School Day at the
Capitol is an opportunity for a field trip for your children to learn
about our government and how laws are made.

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

legislators, use HSLDA's Legislative Toolbox at

BACKGROUND:

Below are five MORE reasons to attend Legislative Day:

> Dispel any negative myths about the homeschool movement.

> Give legislators an understanding of the large numbers of
homeschoolers within the state.

> Provide positive literature to legislators regarding homeschooling.

> Spend one-on-one time with your legislator.

> Your presence is necessary to show that the homeschool movement is
alive, well, and thriving strong.

Thank you for helping defend homeschooling freedom in Indiana.

Sincerely,

Thomas J. (Tj) Schmidt
HSLDA Staff Attorney
