Men often become what they believe themselves to be. If I believe I cannot do something, it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe I can, then I acquire the ability to do it even if I didn't have it in the beginning.
You may never know what results come of your action, but if you do nothing there will be no result.
~ Mahatma Gandhi
This page is about homeschool grassroots activism and self-empowerment. Rarely is a problem so big that we cannot solve it together. Please check the links section below for additional information and a listing of state organizations that provide state specific information and support.
Note: Nothing in this article is meant as legal advice. For legal matters, contact a competent attorney.
A few questions we hope to address:
- How do I organize a grassroots effort to protect my rights to homeschool?
- When and how is the best way to act?
- What does a productive letter to the Editor look like?
- How do I write my representatives and local officials?
- What is the best reaction to a local threat?
How? What? When? Why? Where?
