On January 31, 1865, the 13th Amendment abolished slavery.

The U.S. House of Representatives passed the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, which abolished slavery in the country. It read: 'Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude…shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.' The amendment helped the Congress pass laws against sex trafficking and any other form of slavery in the modern day. It was ratified in December the same year
