This year marked the anniversary for a hugely important moment in US History - it’s been 149 years since the 13th Amendment was ratified. Now begins the countdown to the amendment’s sesquicentennial anniversary. 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. Teachers can register for and download the free digital service-learning curriculum at www.Globalize13.org.
