I, hereby, present my following proposal to Congress for debate:
Slavery, nor any form of involuntary servitude shall exist within the Republic of California, or any territory subject to their jurisdiction.
Congress shall have the ability to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.
This motion is open to any appropriate amendments that members of this Convention would like to include.
Representative from San Diego
I offer a second for this motion so that we may put an end to the abomination that is the practice of slavery.
