An objective for a group to free slaves and pay for them to be relocated in Africa, is a one of the most influential ways to start an end towards slavery.

This is showing the nation that not everyone is for racism, everyone is changing and not everything is based on the color of your skin. Slavery has gone on for way too long and from this point it is time to use any situation to help end this
