This door hanger encourages voters to approve Amendment A, which would remove a provision from the Colorado Constitution that allows slavery if a person is convicted of a crime. The measure is referred to votes by the legislature, and is worded differently than a similar measure that was defeated two years ago.

About the messenger: Abolish Slavery Colorado is an issue committee supporting Amendment A, which is referred to voters by the Colorado General Assembly. The amendment would delete a portion of the state Constitution that would allow slavery as punishment for a crime.
