CHEC takes a bold stand at the Colorado State Capitol to protect your homeschool freedom, parental rights, and religious liberty through the Colorado Homeschool Freedom team. Will you stand with us?
CHEC Director of Government Relations Carolyn Martin leads the effort through the Colorado Homeschool Freedom Team, monitoring legislation at the Capitol in both the House and Senate on your behalf. We’re grateful for God’s faithfulness to provide dedicated leaders and volunteers who have protected our freedom since the passing of Colorado’s home education law in 1988. And today, with pressures mounting here and around the nation, we are determined to make sure that work continues.
This last Colorado Legislative session was truly a battle (you can read more about it on our legislative updates posts ), and it’s only by God’s grace you still have freedom to homeschool. But the threat is as real as ever. We need you to join us!
