Sign the #EndTheException Petition to Finally Abolish Slavery in the US

Floridian convicts leased to harvest timber in the mid-1910s.

A recent article from the Guardian, ‘Slavery by any name is wrong’: the push to end unpaid labor in prisons, talks about the injustice of incarcerated people’s forced/coerced, unpaid labor. It buries the call to action, so we thought we’d highlight that here.

Please consider signing this petition to the US Congress to consider legislation to amend the US Constitution to include the article “‘Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude may be imposed as a punishment for a crime.” This amendment would override the loophole in the 13th and deal a severe blow to the inhumane prison industrial complex.
