HSLDA--Congressional Lobby Training Day Registration Closing Soon!

From the HSLDA E-lert Service...

Congressional Action Program Lobby
Training Day Registration Closing Soon!

Dear Homeschool Family,

There is still room for your family to register for the CAP Lobby
Training Day at Patrick Henry College on March 9. Registration closes
on Friday, March 2, so please go to to
register if you would like to attend and for more information.

HSLDA's CAP Training Day is a part of the Congressional Action Program
(CAP) which exists to create a citizen lobby force that will make a
difference on Capitol Hill when there is important legislation pending
that could affect homeschooling freedoms.

Many of you may remember that CAP was active throughout the 1990s.
Moms, dads, and teens, working under the direction of HSLDA staff,
played an important role in helping persuade congressmen to vote in
favor of homeschool freedoms. They helped defeat H.R. 6 in 1994, when
Congress attempted to require all teachers, including homeschool
parents, to be licensed teachers. CAP lobbyists also helped defeat
President Clinton's national test and Goals 2000. In addition, CAP
also supported legislation which favored homeschool freedom.

Through the experience gained at the CAP Training Day on March 9, you
will be equipped and ready to take on Capitol Hill when called upon.

We look forward to seeing you on March 9. Please call our office at
540-338-5600 and ask for Cristina Meier, or email us at
if you have any questions.

For liberty,

J. Michael Smith

William A. Estrada
Director of Federal Government Relations

-> How many acorns can a chipmunk hold in its cheeks?

We don't know! But we do know that gathering little by little
enables ordinary folks to prepare for hard times. That principle
is behind HSLDA's payment plan: by paying a month at a time,
families can receive an annual HSLDA membership. Meanwhile, they
can feel secure as they homeschool and focus on other priorities
-- their children. Don't go nuts trying to pay for membership all
once. Choose one of our convenient payment plans.
