BRING BACK OUR GIRLS

On April 14, over 300 girls were kidnapped from a school in Chibok, Nigeria. While a few managed to escape, 276 are still missing. Militant group Boko Haram states they intend to sell the girls and Western intelligence believes the girls have already been broken up into smaller groups and moved into neighboring countries such as Chad and Cameroon. 

The world is slowly but surely beginning to express it's outrage and on Mother's Day 2014 Minnesotan mothers, sisters, daughters came together to raise their voices as well. They marched, chanted, held up signs, prayed and promised to continue fighting until the exploitation of girls ends, until schools became safe, until human trafficking was no longer profitable, until the girls were home.
