Missouri--CORRECTION:Emergency Rally Tomorrow, May 14 in Jefferson City--Urgent!

======================================================================
From the HSLDA E-lert Service...
======================================================================
CORRECTED COPY: We apologize for the confusion. The rally is tomorrow,
May 14th. The date was incorrect in our original alert.

Missouri--Emergency Rally Tomorrow, May 14 in Jefferson City--Urgent!

HSLDA Members and Friends,

We urgently need your attendance at a rally tomorrow on the steps of
the Capitol in Jefferson City at 1 p.m. to stop an extremely serious
threat that has emerged with literally no warning. There is no time
for phone calls or emails to be effective. We need thousands of
homeschoolers physically present tomorrow!

This dramatic threat would massively increase government control over
homeschooling. Every homeschooled child (except those in St. Louis
City)--whether 16, 17, 18, 19, or 20--would be subject to compulsory
school attendance until they could prove to the state's satisfaction
that they had completed "sixteen credits towards high school
graduation."

This would suddenly give the state power to control and define what a
homeschool "credit" is. It would immediately give the state power to
control what is required for homeschool graduation. This would
destroy liberty for homeschoolers in Missouri on an unprecedented
scale and cause unimaginable problems.

ACTION REQUESTED

We need 5,000 homeschoolers tomorrow at 1 p.m. on the steps of the
Capitol in Jefferson City to send a message: VOTE NO ON S.B. 291. Car
pool if possible to make parking easier for others. Forward this to
other homeschoolers.

BACKGROUND

The legislature closes this Friday. This bill could be voted on late
Thursday or Friday. S.B. 291 posed no threat to homeschoolers until it
was very recently amended to add the credit and graduation provision.
Immediate action is required. Families for Home Education (FHE) joins
HSLDA in calling for this rally. Brad Haines of FHE will lead the
rally.

This is our hour of need. Can you set everything else aside for
freedom and be ready in a minute, like the minutemen of old?

Thank you for standing with us for freedom!

Sincerely,
Scott Woodruff

If you pass on a legacy of freedom, your children and their
children's children will thank you. But freedom is never secure;
it must always be guarded. Membership with HSLDA is an investment
in the future that can be passed on to future generations of
families wanting to teach their children at home.
