About Homeschool Freedom Day

Join us in Rocklin, CA to be trained and equipped to build relationships with our state legislators!

We as private homeschoolers need to maintain a visible presence and positive impression of private Christian home education to our state legislators. Your contacts with your state legislators allow them the opportunity to meet with actual homeschool families.

Building relationships with your legislators helps you, the homeschooling families, and us, CHEA and FPM, when we defend your private homeschooling freedoms against bills that aim to regulate it in the California Legislature.

We will give you the tools so that you can build relationships with our California state legislators and their staff and give them information about private home education in a friendly, professional manner. In addition to training, you’ll hear inspiring messages from those who work with the legislature at the Capitol. We also plan to do a prayer walk around the Capitol building.

Capitol Day has been hosted by FPM in Sacramento at the beginning of each new two-year legislative session for the past three decades, and every year since 2019. However, now that the capitol has been closed to the general public since early 2020, we have adapted our conference for the present circumstances and are excited to announce Homeschool Freedom Day (HFD) where you will be trained to build relationships with your legislators from your own home. Click here to read about FPM and CHEA’s 2021 Virtual Capitol Day.

Homeschool Freedom Day Includes:

  • Topics focused on getting involved in preserving your private homeschool freedoms
  • Inspiring speakers with insights on the inner workings of the Capitol and the importance of your involvement
  • Valuable training sessions to prepare you to reach out to your legislators from your own home, such as
    • Finding your legislators
    • Calling, writing a letter, or meeting with your legislators
    • Communicating issues to your legislators
    • Building relationships with your legislators
  • Learning about the California Legislature and legislative process
  • Lunch with fellow attendees
  • Capitol prayer time

Plan to join us and please share this with your private homeschool group members and friends.

Frank Erb

Frank Erb

Frank Erb serves as Missionary Pastor to the California State Capitol in Sacramento. He has served in this way full-time since 2008, providing pastoral outreach, in-depth expository Bible-teaching, biblical discipleship, and pastoral counseling and guidance for State Senators, Assembly Members, Statewide Leaders, Constitutional Officers, Department Heads, Legislative Staff, Lobbyists, Sergeants-at-Arms, Security staff, and others.

Beyond the Capitol, Frank speaks and teaches in churches and to other groups, and provides Biblical coaching for leaders of all kinds. Frank reaches out to all leaders, regardless of their political party or perspective, realizing that what all people need most is the inner transformation and spiritual maturity that can only come through the Good News of Jesus Christ and the Word of God. When elected officials’ hearts and minds are changed, God is glorified, they are blessed, and God’s word guides them in making wiser decisions.
