February 1st, 2019 is National Freedom Day in the United States. National Freedom Day is celebrated because on February 1st, 1865 Abraham Lincoln signed the joint resolution from the House and the Senate that eventually became the 13th Amendment to the United States Constitution—the amendment that officially ended slavery in the United States.
This year and every year, make it a point to celebrate National Freedom Day and use it as an opportunity to educate others about the importance of becoming a modern day abolitionist.
Additionally, National Freedom Day is a great time to learn more about your country’s relationship with slavery—as understanding the struggle of historical slavery is crucial when trying to eradicate modern day slavery.
