December Appeal
By HOW
We as homeschoolers know that parents, not the government, are charged with raising our children.  Maintaining the rights of parents is crucial to protecting children and strengthening families.  But, we now find that our historic American rights are being threatened by right-eroding international law.  We are particularly concerned with the possible ratification of the United Nations treaty on the Convention for the Rights of the Child.  Only a US constitutional amendment will protect American children and parents since the treaty will override all state constitutions. This treaty is a threat to families and to national sovereignty. 
A United States constitutional amendment has been introduced into the legislature to protect parental rights.  For a constitutional amendment to pass, two-thirds of the house and senate votes are needed.  There are currently 127 congressional cosponsors and 6 senate cosponsors.  Last spring Homeschoolers of Wyoming wrote to Representative Lummis asking her to become a sponsor of the amendment, which she rapidly did.  We later wrote to Senators Enzi and Barrasso with the same request, but without success.
We are writing you to request that during the month of December each Wyoming homeschooling family (and their friends and family who share their concern) would contact our senators either by email or phone asking them to help protect families in Wyoming by sponsoring S.J. Res.16 (senate joint resolution 16).  We know that they are working on many different and serious issues, so that we need to let them know that this is important to us.  Their contact information is as follows:
Senator John Barrasso
Washington D.C. office:
202-224-6441 or toll free at 866-235-9553
Senator_JBarrasso@barrasso.senate.gov
Senator Mike Enzi
Washington D.C. office:
202-224-3424 or toll free at 888-250-1879
To email:  enzi.senate.gov and then click on “email Mike Enzi”
