chance to express their views on the constitutional amendment defining
traditional marriage. Please vote against all bills that erode the
strength of the traditional family and threaten parental rights,
specifically House Bills 437, 791, and 905."

You do not have to identify yourself as a homeschooler. Though this
issue affects homeschoolers, it also affects every family in New
