Frederick Douglas Family Initiative

it’s been 150 years since the 13th Amendment was ratified. Here's your chance to celebrate how the amendment helped bring both the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution into line with our belief that we are all "created equal.” The celebration begins with a service-learning curriculum for secondary schools nationwide called, Globalize 13. It looks at the historical importance of the 13th Amendment while presenting lessons about the slavery that still exists in our global supply chains.
