California: Action Needed to Oppose San Juan Capistrano Daytime Curfew

California--Action Needed to Oppose San Juan Capistrano Daytime

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

The San Juan Capistrano City Council is considering a daytime curfew
for children under 18. We need you to act to oppose this legislation
that undermines the freedom and liberty we enjoy in the United States.

If passed, this curfew will affect the flexibility and freedom of
homeschool students to be in public places during school hours.
Homeschool children, even those from outside San Juan Capistrano who
are just visiting, could potentially be taken to the local police
station to verify who they are and that they have a valid excuse to be
in a public place. In fact, HSLDA is currently suing Los Angeles for
false arrest of two homeschool students last year under a similar law.

Please take action, as requested below, to defend your freedom.

Our volunteer coordinator for opposing the daytime curfew ordinance is
Mrs. Virginia Thompson. She can be reached via email at or by phone at (949) 496-2120.

Key people working with Virginia Thompson to oppose the proposed
daytime curfew: Robyn Nordell, Marie Stoutt, and Steve Cotugno.

Please send an email to the San Juan Capistrano mayor and city council
members respectfully asking them to OPPOSE any form of daytime curfew.
Include one or two reasons why you want the DAYTIME curfew opposed.
Send your email as soon as possible--Monday is better; Tuesday before
5 p.m. is still helpful.

Hon. Larry Kramer, Mayor Pro Tem at

Hon. Derek Reeve at
Hon. John Taylor

4) Pray that this attack on freedom will be defeated.

5) Please call homeschoolers and other freedom-loving citizens in your
area to alert them to this need as quickly as possible. Every person
you can reach by telephone is one person more likely to stop this
un-American curfew.

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.
