2022 IAHE Homeschool Day at the Capitol

Set your own schedule! Move at your own pace!

There is nothing quite like hundreds of homeschool families meeting at the Capitol for a day of fellowship, learning, and activities for all ages. It’s great for you, and it’s great for our legislators. Homeschool freedom matters and joining us at the Capitol is a great way to show your support.

There will be activities and opportunities for the whole family. Join us in the morning. Come in the afternoon. Pack a lunch and stay for the whole day.

We can’t wait to see you there!

Education. Advocacy. Civics.

It’s our desire that EVERY legislator meets a homeschool family from their district during our event. It sends a powerful message to know that homeschool rights are important enough to take time out of your very busy schedule to come to the Statehouse. Contact your legislator prior to the event to schedule a time to meet with them.
