Take Action To Preserve Parental Rights and Family Autonomy!

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

Senate Bill 130 is scheduled for a second reading in the Colorado
Senate tomorrow, March 6.

This bill creates the office of early childhood and youth development
in the Department of Human Services , which would increase government
control over early learning, child health, child mental health, and
family support and parent education. Efforts to increase government
control over early childhood education are often a precursor to
expanding the compulsory school attendance age. HSLDA opposes this
bill because of its excessive government interference into the family.

ACTION REQUESTED

Please call your state senator by noon tomorrow (March 6) and ask him
or her to oppose SB 130. You can find your senator's name and contact
information here: http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=13939 (Just type
in your ZIP code and then click on your senator's name under "Colorado
state government.")

Please give the following message in your own words:

"Please oppose SB 130. This bill increases government control over
families. Parents - not the government - know what's best for their
families. I oppose increasing the Department of Human Services'
authority over early learning, child health, child mental health, and
family support and parent education."

We greatly value you and your support--it is a privilege to serve you!
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 >>

Very truly yours,


Michael P. Donnelly, Esq.
HSLDA Staff Attorney

-> Extreme makeovers are for extreme circumstances...

Most homeschools don't need an extreme makeover, but there is
something to be said for attention to detail and recognition of
accomplishments. Watch the media and you'll soon see that not
everyone wants home educators and homeschooling to look good.
HSLDA works hard to shed light on the good work of home educators
so it's obvious that we don't need someone "making-over" our
homeschools. Join HSLDA and help us show the world that we're fine
as we are . . . thank you!
