End Modern Slavery!

This week, Lincoln is up for an Academy Award because he moved Congress to act on slavery. We know there are more slaves today than at any other time in history, but Congress isn’t stepping up. We’re celebrating an ideal we’re not living up to. In fact, we spend more on the war on drugs in ONE week than we have fighting slavery over the past TEN years. 

#ImWithLincoln is a campaign to ask our Senators to make freedom a priority by doubling annual funding spent to address this crime. This isn’t about more spending; it’s about better spending.

We made this video to give Americans an understanding of the issue and to connect us all to one of our most cherished ideals: Freedom. Please share it far and wide, visit, and tell Congress you’re with Lincoln and they should be, too.
