American
Anti-Slavery Society



Melissa Conley Tyler

In November 1995, at a meeting in Cambridge, Massachusetts, the American Anti-Slavery Society was founded with Melissa Conley Tyler as Chairwoman.

Unlike the former American Anti-Slavery Society, the American and Foreign Anti-Slavery Society and the National Anti-Slavery Society, the present Society is a charitable foundation and not just a political campaign organization.

Subsequently, John J Watson of Pennsylvania became Chairman of the American Anti-Slavery Society.

In addition to the American Anti-Slavery Society, there is the American Anti-Slavery Group.

The American Anti-Slavery Group must be distinguished from the American Anti-Slavery Society (which is part of the Anti-Slavery Society).  The American Anti-Slavery Society is a charity and, as such, is not permitted by US law to engage in political activity (which, under the common law of the USA, is defined to include demonstrations, protests and lobbying to change government policy).

The American Anti-Slavery Group has done valuable work on the issue of slavery in Sudan, whereas the primary focus of the American Anti-Slavery Society is on funding work in West Africa and Asia.
