Bring Back Our Girls

On April 14, more than 200 girls were abducted from their school in Nigeria. The terrorist group Boko Haram has claimed responsibility and has threatened to sell the girls. There are also reports that the girls are being married off to members of Boko Haram.

Sign the Change.org petition calling on Nigerian president Goodluck Jonathan to get the girls back safely to their families.
