Militants Threaten To Sell Missing Girls into Slavery

Tomorrow, it will be three weeks since dozens of gunmen abducted more than 200 girls from a Nigerian dormitory as they slept. Girl Rising and Smart Girls plan action to help bring them home.

Twenty-one days. Dozens of armed men. More than 200 missing school girls. Tomorrow, it will be three weeks since dozens of gunmen abducted more than 200 girls from a Nigerian dormitory as they slept. While several of the girls escaped, most remain missing, and the leaders of Boko Haram have announced they plan to sell the girls into sexual slavery. Tomorrow at 12 noon EST, Girl Rising and Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls initiative will co-host a special “Call to Action” Google hangout. The public is invited to join the experts, organizers and concerned citizens who will be discussing the situation and how to help. They will share a tool kit for raising awareness about the situation, in an effort to bring the girls home. Click here to RSVP and tune in.
