Encourage the young activists in your life to apply for our 2022 Students Opposing Slavery (SOS) International Summit (June 26-July 1, 2022). The deadline has been extended to May 1, 2022.
SOS is a program, developed by creative and motivated high school students, to continue Abraham Lincoln’s fight for freedom by addressing issues of modern slavery. Every year young activists from around the globe come together for a week-long summit where they tackle a problem facing contemporary abolitionists. In 2016, SOS received the Presidential Award for Extraordinary Efforts to Combat Trafficking in Persons. Read more.
Grief is part of our origin story at President Lincoln’s Cottage. After losing their 11- year-old son Willie in February of 1862, Abraham and Mary Lincoln sought a place to grieve quietly, so they moved to the Cottage at the Soldier’s Home.
Join us on April 13th, as we bring together experts, scholars, and the public to cultivate fierce compassion for the bereaved in a society that shies away from death and sorrow during our 2022 Lincoln Ideas Forum.
