There is a tragic irony to the fact that currently 180 years after the Slavery Abolition Act prohibited slavery in the British Empire, 150 years after the Emancipation Proclamation prohibited slavery in the U.S., and 125 years after the Golden Law prohibited slavery in Brazil, black enslavement continues in several especially pernicious forms throughout the transatlantic region.

      As Rector of St Philip's Episcopal Church, Buffalo, New York, It is both duty and privilege to sign this petition. This Historic African Episcopal Church was founded in 1861 by 32 black men, one month after the start of The Civil War. We continue to engage in the struggle against racism to this day.
