    My name is Ha-Tuyen Nguyen. I am an intern at Free the Slaves. Currently, Free the Slaves (along with other organizations) is organizing an event for this week’s celebration of Lincoln’s legacy in Washington, DC. I hope you can help our organization get the word out for DC Emancipation Parade this Thursday. I truly appreciate it. Keep up the awesome work!
