Homeschool Iowa Capitol Day
Our annual Homeschool Iowa Capitol Day is consistently one of the most well-attended advocacy events at the Iowa Statehouse every year.
We frequently hear compliments on how our community engages with the legislators and everyone else at the Capitol. It is easily one of our most important public relations tools for protecting homeschool freedom in Iowa.
Due to limitations on large gatherings and the closing of the State Capitol to the public,
our 2020 Homeschool Iowa Capitol Day transitioned from a public event/rally to our first
“Virtual” Homeschool Iowa Capitol Day.
This event is so much more than a day to "lobby" our legislators!
It's an entertaining, educational, impacting experience!
Your family can provide legislators with "a face for homeschooling."
What an effective means to make a real difference!
You'll learn about our government and state capitol,
and enjoy many additional activities.

Zan’s homeschool journey began in 1984 when homeschooling was illegal in South Carolina. The State Superintendent of Education threatened Zan with jail for insisting on homeschooling her son.
For the next eight years, she and other homeschool families battled for homeschool freedom and the establishment of landmark homeschool legislation in South Carolina. Her success in South Carolina has spearheaded legislation to ensure homeschool freedom in other states.
In 1990, Zan founded the South Carolina Association of Independent Home Schools and served as its president for ten years.
Her fight for homeschool freedom has led her to serve as the National Grassroots Director for ParentalRights.org, to advocate for homeschooling in the media (appearing on NBC’s Today Show) and at the nation’s capital, and to write profusely about the benefits of homeschooling.
