Why it is Important to Celebrate the 13th Amendment

“The thirteenth amendment is a step on the journey to ending enslavement... The amendment didn’t change men’s hearts, and it didn’t change one man’s ability to enslave another man (or woman). But it helped to change our society... That is exactly what we are trying to do as we address modern slavery and human trafficking.”
