Wednesday 23rd July marks the 100th day since the schoolgirls of Chibok, Nigeria were abducted. #BringBackOurGirls is calling for a worldwide vigil to mark this day.

Bring Back Our Girls Vancouver, with the support of Amnesty International, is responding by inviting Vancouver to gather in vigil on Burrard Bridge, July 23rd, from 5-6pm.

We will stand to maintain pressure on the powers that can liberate the girls, to keep this crime in the public eye, to reassure the families in Nigeria their children are not forgotten, to hold these young women in our hearts.

We are mindful of subsequent abductions of women, boys, and infants and we include them under this banner.

Please join us. Wear red. Bring a handmade sign if you can.
