UNITED STATES FREEDOM ALWAYS ANTI-HUMAN SLAVERY MONUMENT
"Why is there No U.S.
Why is there No Anti-slavery Monument in our nation's capitol Washington D.C.? Or anywhere else in the United States for that matter?
In a nation that prides itself on monuments and all things monumental as instruments of its grand vision, purpose, and power, there are none. There are hundreds of monuments to the Confederacy and it’s symbols, but there is only one monument to slavery's effect in an entire monument driven nation and none to anti-slavery and freedom in the same monument is to be found, anywhere. Why is this, when there has never been a human being born that does not desire, hope for and want Freedom and Equality in all human history?
The Only national federally funded monument memorial to slavery and it is presently falling apart is, "The President's House Freedom and Slavery Memorial " click to see here: honoring only nine of George Washington's slaves who lived there in Philadelphia with him and his wife Martha, from 1790-1797. George Washington would go on to own hundreds of slaves, even renting them out in the building of the White House and Washington D.C. But as Heather Heyer lost her life to the hate devouring and dividing a nation over its monuments, we must also ask what will fill those empty place, and fill our hearts for a greater equality and shared humanity for our nation and the nations of the world.
Act and Act now, build this and many other public symbols. Show the nation and world a clar and definitive stand against hate and injustice. Give it the monumnets for humanity it derserves and are rpomised in its consitition. For when any individual, anywhere has a moment to reflect on the state of their lives they find the need for "freedom" is their universal human birthright, motivating them to unite and act. The "Freedom Always Anti-slavery, Anti-Human trafficking monument" project began in December, 2016. Since that time the call to action has only grown louder and louder.

"The time is always Right to do the Right thing"
Martin Luthur King Jr.
When I first posted the anti-slavery monument project on social media I received an immediate response: "We won the war, let's move on!". My thoughts were: "Which war did we win, and move on to what? It struck me that it is this the agonizing dilemma that we all face daily, wanting equality for all as our national promised ideal, and having to face how much work there is left to do to achieve it. Below is a video showing that city after city is questioning and taking down the symbols of the confederacy and hate. The loss of a single life in Charlotteville, Virginia of Heather Heyer to raging hate must also not be forgotten.
That is what, a nation is, a collective act and resolve to change that which destroy so aimlessly the lives of millions. It is the threat "within" our daily lives of domestic terrorism. A systematic bigotroy against all of us, that we must unite and stop. With these thoughts chose to ACT: Become an "Equalizer" Now!
