Oklahoma: Plan to Come to the 28th Annual Home Educators' Capitol Day

Oklahoma: Make Your Plans to Come to the 28th Annual Home Educators'
Capitol Day!

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

The Oklahoma Home Educators' Capitol Day is less than a month away! On
February 12, 2013, we will mark the 28th Annual Home Educators'
Capitol Day in Oklahoma. This event is the longest running Home
Education Day at the Capitol in the country.

I believe that this event, hosted by Oklahoma Christian Home
Educators' Consociation (OCHEC), along with the consistent large
turnout by homeschooling families across the state, is one of main
reasons Oklahoma has continued to enjoy exceptional homeschooling

We have certainly seen great uncertainty and even turmoil on a
national level, but we must stand strong in our conviction to teach
our children at home and hold tight to those biblical principles upon
which many of our convictions are based. That is why the theme for
this year's Home Educators' Capitol Day is so fitting--Standing
Strong! Will you come and join with thousands, yes thousands, of
homeschoolers across Oklahoma? Last year 2,500 homeschoolers showed up
for Capitol Day. Register today at: and help continue to make the
Oklahoma Home Educators' Capitol Day the best in the country!

At Capitol Day your family will have the opportunity to tour the
Capitol, sit in on the opening session of the House or Senate, invite
your legislator to lunch, watch a historical re-enactor, participate
in a scavenger hunt, sit in on a town hall meeting, and attend a rally
on the 2nd floor of the Capitol Building. Check-in and activities
begin at 8:30 a.m.

The scheduled speakers at the rally this year include Lt. Governor
Todd Lamb, Rep. Josh Cockroft, Rep. Randy Grau, Rep. Jason Murphy, and
HSLDA Staff Attorney Tj Schmidt.

Over the years, the Oklahoma Home Educators' Capitol Day has been one
of the best-attended events across the country within the homeschool
community. I strongly believe that it is because of your attendance,
and hundreds of other homeschooling families, that home education
freedom in Oklahoma has remained strong. Over the years Oklahoma
homeschool families have resisted several attempts by legislators to
regulate them. All have failed due to your efforts and prayers.

We would love to see the 2013 Oklahoma Home Educators' Capitol Day
have the biggest attendance yet. Please plan now to bring your family
to Oklahoma City and have a wonderful experience for your children and
the future of home education freedom. Find out more information here: .


1) Come to the Capitol on February 12, 2013, to participate in the
28th Annual Home Educators' Capitol Day. If you, or an older child
would like to be a volunteer please contact for
more information.

2) If you can't come to the Home Education Day at the Capitol, please
pray for the event. Contact your state legislators and get to know
them beyond just the Home Educators' Capitol Day event. If desired,
you could also donate to help defray the costs (over $3,000) of
Capitol Day at: .

If you are not yet a member of HSLDA and would like to help us fight

Thank you for your part in fighting for freedom in Oklahoma! Feel free
to forward this to your friends who are homeschooling but may not be
part of HSLDA, OCHEC, or CHEF of OK.

called and asked about our HSLDA member discount and they lowered
our premium by approx $95 per year...coincidentally the same
amount as our HSLDA annual membership fee. Thought you'd want to
