Passed in 1865, the Thirteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is celebrated for abolishing slavery and involuntary servitude. However, to the surprise of many, the Thirteenth Amendment includes an exception clause that allows slavery and involuntary servitude to be used as punishment for crime.

Help us Abolish Slavery in OHIO!!!
The amendment stated: Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.
Doesn't matter what crime. How much time. You are enslaved if you have been duly convicted. This is inhumane and we're gonna make history changing it. We have never seen a state without slavery- we don't know what it looks like. We don't know how much it'll cost. We don't care honestly. Because there shall be NO SLAVERY period!
