In this episode of Abolition Today we highlight legislative testimony in Nevada and Vermont. It is our goal to do so more often for every state fighting in the halls of legislation to remove pro-slavery constitutional language. The speakers channel the raw honest passion and determination of our abolitionist ancestors with words that will ring out across the annals of time. They are... Life changing. Inspirational. Uplifting. Hopeful. Powerful. These amazing testimonies today hold as true to current events as they did for Fredrick Douglass, Sojourner Truth, and Mother Tubman in their time. They deserve to be heard and you deserve to hear them.
