Freedom Isn't Free--Bring Your Family to the Capitol

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

Homeschoolers know more than anyone that freedom isn't free. By
participating in the Homeschool Family Day at the Capitol you will be
working to put a face to our movement which is an important support to
preserving our freedom. When legislators get to know homeschool
families they understand why it doesn't make sense to impose
additional regulations on us. A trip to the Capitol is also a fun
family field trip, especially during an election year. I will also be
attending as part of the program and look forward to meeting many of
you and your families.

The Home Education League of Michigan (HELM) is sponsoring the event
from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday, September 11, 2012 at the state
Capitol in Lansing. The day's highlights include a guided tour of the
Capitol, a legislative luncheon with elected officials from around the
state, opportunities to observe the legislative session, attend
committee meetings, participate in workshops, and more. Space is
limited and registration is required, so please take a moment to let
the organizers know you are coming--and invite your friends as well.
The registration fee of $8 per person with an optional $5 for a
catered lunch is a small investment in our precious freedom. For more
information, visit the HELM website here:

Thank you for your support, as we could not advance homeschool freedom
without 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?

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!
