Colorado: Your Attendance Needed at the Homeschool Day at the Capitol

Dear HSLDA members and friends:

Christian Home Educators of Colorado (CHEC) invites all home-educating
families to its Home School Day at the Capitol on April 13, 2007 at
the Colorado State Capitol in Denver.

We at the Home School Legal Defense Association believe it is very
important for as many homeschool families to attend as possible. The
current Colorado Legislature is NOT pro-family. At any time, they
could introduce legislation to restrict homeschooling.

However, we have seen how effective capitol lobby days are in
preventing bad legislation. If a legislator from either party meets 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, this year HSLDA Senior Counsel Chris Klicka will be
speaking on the Capitol Steps at the Rally. Klicka will be telling
stories of the hard-fought battle for the freedom of parents to direct
the education of their children

You can turn the event into an educational field trip for your
children by touring the Capitol, attending the morning session and
being introduced to the Colorado House or Senate, and by attending the
entertaining and informative workshops on government. Workshops for
teens and pre-teens are offered in morning and afternoon sessions.

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

On the agenda:

> Noontime Rally with Chris Klicka speaking on "Home School Heroes"
> Visit your Representative and Senator
> Participate in FREE workshops.
> Homeschool display contest! The displays will be set up in the foyer
of the Capitol from April 9-13, 2007.
> Participate in various educational tours of museums and the Capitol.
> Fill the Gallery of the House Chamber with homeschooled families are
introduced on the floor by Representative Kevin Lundberg

BACKGROUND

Below are MORE reasons to attend the Capitol 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.

Please, help keep homeschooling free in Colorado. We make a
significant statement to your representatives when 3,000 home
educators participate in the noontime rally at the capitol on April
13.
