New Anti-Slavery Resolution to the 13th Amendment Could End Forced Prison Labor

The 13th Amendment states that a person convicted of a crime can be forced to work involuntary as punishment.

Unfortunately, this loophole in the amendment has created a systemic pipeline in which mostly Blacks and brown groups are convicted and imprisoned for even petty crimes & made to perform prison labor which is essentially, re-enslavement.

The new law amendment, spearheaded by Missouri House representative William Lacy Clay, is heavily co-signed by Senator Bernie Sanders (VT) as well as MA & MD senators.
