New Mexico--We Need You to Come to the
Annual Home School Day at the Capitol!

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

Christian Association of Parent Educators of New Mexico (CAPE) invites
all home-educating families to its Home School Day at the Capitol on
Thursday, February 7, 2008 at the New Mexico State Capitol, Santa Fe,

We at the Home School Legal Defense Association believe it is very
important for as many homeschool families to attend as possible. In my
20 years at HSLDA, I 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 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!


Below are five MORE reasons to attend Legislative Day:

> Dispel any negative myths of 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.

Please, help keep homeschooling free in New Mexico. We make a
significant statement to your representatives when hundreds of home
educators participate in rally at the capitol on February.

Contact Louis and Cindy King, Capitol Day Coordinators, at
505-847-2322, or, and RSVP before February 1 so
that name tags can be printed for you and your children. Even if you
don't RSVP, come anyway! If you know your district or the names of
your legislators, that will help them earmark a packet of information
for you to deliver. Plan to meet at 8:30 a.m. in the Main House
Gallery of the Roundhouse, and get your "marching orders."

We hope you can come this year!

-> Is customer service an art or a science?

For us, good customer service is both an art and a science
-it should appeal to our members and be effective. Consider what
our members say about us:

The freedom HSLDA allows me to have as I homeschool is wonderful!
They handle the law and I get to dedicate the time to my daughter.
