SIGN NOW: Celebrate the defeat of the Confederacy EVERY YEAR
The confederacy was a racist movement to betray America’s founding ideals. We should celebrate its defeat.
On April 9th, Robert E. Lee surrendered to the Union, and the south rejoined America. They ratified the 13th Amendment, and enslaved people were finally free. But instead of working toward justice and lifting up formerly enslaved people, America coddled the racists who started the war.
No one currently alive fought in the Civil War. There’s no one left to coddle. As we move towards building our more perfect union, we must stop celebrating the confederacy and start celebrating its defeat.
ADD YOUR NAME: Tell Congress to enact a new federal holiday on April 9th, to celebrate the defeat of the confederacy!
