On April 14th 2014, 270+ girls were kidnapped from The Chibok Government Secondary School by Boko Haram terrorists in Nigeria. Exactly 1 year later on April 14th, 2015 we came together with our Nigerian sisters and made a call to the Nigerian Embassy to Bring Back Our Girls!!!! We are hopeful that the current government in Nigeria will do just that. We continue to stand with them and use social media to keep the fight going and the movement growing.

“Dear [name of leader],
On April 14th, 2014, one year ago, over 276 school girls were kidnapped from their dormitory by the terrorist group Boko Haram. These girls were studying for their exams and in the middle of the night armed men ripped them from their beds. Educated girls will save the world and now we must save them. The future of Nigeria and the world depends on the rescue of all of these girls and the stabilization of the country.
It is unconscionable for World leaders to be silent any longer. We want you to demand that the Nigerian Government take action and rescue the Chibok girls NOW.
