Receiving All Our Urgent E-mail Alerts?
Here’s How!

(January 2011)

Our primary mission is to help ensure our freedom as parents to train, educate, and care for our children privately, without governmental interference. We can only accomplish this through your teamwork efforts with us.

The most effective and timely way for us to communicate with you regarding critical legislative matters is through our e-mail Alerts, Updates, and Newsflashes, which we send out from “FPM - Family Protection Ministries”. Our e-mail Alerts give you specific actions that you need to take in response to real-time legal/legislative threats. We also periodically e-mail Updates or Newsflashes to keep you up to date on Alerts we have sent out, and to provide you with timely legal/legislative information concerning parental rights and private home education.

You may already be receiving some of our e-mails through HSLDA or CHEA but the only way to be sure you receive all of our e-mails is to also sign up directly with us. HSLDA or CHEA send on those e-mails that are primarily on homeschooling but not all those that are related to parental rights.

Because we know that your time is limited and very valuable, we make every attempt to use our e-mails sparingly and only when the issue is important and time-sensitive. For all other important actions and information, we wait and include them in our printed newsletter, the Legal/Legislative Update.
