-> Have you ever yelled into the wind, only to hear the sound of your
voice blown back at you?

It's hard to be heard in the midst of a storm. Trying to influence
federal legislation is much like yelling to be heard while
standing in a fierce wind. Yet when 80,000 voices join together,
they become a powerful force that cannot be drowned out.
Join HSLDA to be heard above the tempests that threaten homeschool
freedoms.

1. A Clear and Present Danger

HSLDA Chairman Michael Farris warned at this year's National
Conference that despite the success of SR99 to block its ratification,
the Convention on the Rights of the Child remains a clear and present
danger to U.S. sovereignty though the application in U.S. courts of
"Customary International Law." His clear explanation is summarized at
ParentalRights.org.
