HSLDA--Action Needed to Support Parental Rights

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

The Wyoming legislature has an opportunity to support parental rights
by passing HJ 0003. Parental rights are an important foundation to
defending our homeschooling freedoms. Supreme Court cases and
international treaties continue to pose a serious threat to parental
rights in the United States. Wyoming citizens have the opportunity to
voice their support for an amendment to the federal Constitution
protecting parental rights.

HJ 0003 is a joint resolution that would call on the Congress of the
United States to pass a parental rights amendment and send it to the
states for ratification. Five other states have already passed a
similar resolution. However, because this year is a budget year for
the Wyoming legislature a two-thirds vote of the legislature is needed
to consider HJ 0003. Therefore we need your help today.

ACTION REQUESTED

Please email and call your senator and representative asking them to
send HJ0003 to committee so that the bill can receive an up-or-down
vote in the Wyoming legislature. Please feel free to give them the
following message in your own words:

"After Sponsor Representative Botten reads HJ0003, please vote to
allow HJ0003 to be sent to committee. It is important that Wyoming
make a statement supporting parental rights."

You can find who your senator is by clicking:

Because this bill applies to all Wyoming parents, it is not necessary
to identify yourself as a homeschooler. HSLDA is teaming up with
Parentalrights.org and WyWatch to track HJ0003 and ensure its passage.

BACKGROUND

For more details on this, read the text of the bill here:
http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=13723
The right to homeschool is based on parents' fundamental right to
direct the education and upbringing of their children, and HSLDA has
been in the center of the fight to preserve these rights for more than
25 years.

While many courts, including the U.S. Supreme Court, have affirmed
parental rights in a variety of circumstances, some recent decisions
have given reason for concern that recognition of parental
responsibility and authority is eroding. Consequently, there is a
movement underway to amend the U.S. Constitution to protect this
fundamental right. To learn more visit www.ParentalRights.org.

Without your support we could not stand for freedom in Wyoming! If
you or someone you know is not a member of HSLDA, will you consider
taking a moment today to join or recommend us and support our work
defending individual families threatened by government officials and
protecting homeschooling freedom for all? Join now at:

Very truly yours,
