Capitol Day  Oklahoma City Annually in February

February 2014 will mark the 29th year that families from across Oklahoma have convened at our state capitol to celebrate home education. This annual event is our opportunity to remind our elected officials that as homeschool families,

we take our citizenship responsibilities seriously, and to express our appreciation to our legislators for their service to our communities.

If you have not attended Oklahoma Home Educators’ Capitol Day before, you have missed a fun and educational event that has a huge impact on our effectiveness in lobbying the Oklahoma legislature for home education.

This is the perfect time for you to bring the family to your state capitol and be the face of home education to your legislators.

Please register on the OCHEC site to receive updated information for attendance each year.

Linda’s Note: The current legislative session will start soon along with the perennial bills that could affect our freedom. I double check each alert for validity and type of response needed before sending it down the THE Loop.

Book Benevolence is the third Saturday of each month.

Find detailed information about Book Benevolence here.
