Urgent Post Election Update from Mike Harris (HSLDA)

Please read the message below from HSLDA.
Take heed lest elected decision makers decide parents are not qualified to make wise determinations regarding the best interests of their own children. 
Home education is only one of the parental choices that would fall by the wayside should the UN powers-that-be get their way.  Children who are taught at home cannot be satisfactorily indoctrinated by government ideology — especially if it leans towards socialism.  Parental beliefs and opinions that champion independent thought and Christian truth tend to interfere with government sanctioned training if children are not enrolled in government controlled schools……”

Urgent Post-Election Update from Mike Farris

Dear Friend,

It’s going to take even more effort to defend our God-given parental rights.

Mike Farris
HSLDA Founder and Chairman

There is no easy way to say this. Our goal of protecting parental rights and homeschool freedom just got a lot harder as a result of Tuesday’s election. This is especially true in the U.S. Senate where we will now face 53 senators who have uniformly supported UN treaties to undermine our families and our national sovereignty.

Those who wish to push America into the camp of UN-controlled nations have to be absolutely giddy at their prospects.

Before the election, we had obtained intelligence that the proponents of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities were going to make a serious run for ratification during the lame duck session of Congress that starts next week. Their chances of success have dramatically improved.

We can and must fight back. We need 34 senators to stand against these efforts that would place American policy and our families under the watchful control of the United Nations.

It is going to take a far more robust effort to stop the ratification in this political atmosphere. We will have to conduct a massive public relations campaign to educate about American sovereignty and the impact of UN treaties on our liberty.

Time is absolutely of the essence to stop the Senate from handing our nation over to the bureaucrats in New York and Geneva. Please give sacrificially today to our Homeschool Freedom Fund to halt this pro-treaty surge.

I just returned from Germany where parental rights in education are non-existent. German parents warned me to redouble my efforts to stop these UN treaties lest we fall into the same trap.

 

I need your help right now. Your donation is tax-deductible. More importantly, it will help preserve your God-given freedom to direct the education and upbringing of your children.

Sincerely,

Michael Farris
Chairman
