The 13th Amendment Freedom Week Movement is a non-profit educational organization under the guidelines of the Internal Revenue Service Code 501C3, with tax exempt status.
The ideals, principles, and aspirations of freedom, justice, and equal opportunity are promoted in the Movement. It is founded to establish an annual freedom celebration for the first time in American history when all law-abiding Americans were free, and consequently the end of chattel slavery.
This celebration is based upon the ratification of the 13th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, December 6, 1865; it seeks the participation of all Americans regardless of race, religion, or creed. Its motto is to “Celebrate while you Educate!”
