New York City, NY -- This Tuesday, May 6th at 12pm EST, Girl Rising and Amy Poehler's Smart Girls initiative will be co-organizing a "Call to Action" Google Hangout in response to the abducted Nigerian school girls.

What's happening in Nigeria?

Tuesday marks three weeks since dozens of gunmen stormed the Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok, Nigeria and abducted more than 200 girls who were asleep in their dormitories. Even as global media coverage grows, so do the fears of the families and communities of the missing girls.


With every passing day, the crisis intensifies: where are these girls and what will it take to bring them home? Mounting outrage around the world is matched by an escalating desire to do something  anything  to bring these girls to safety and their captors to justice.

Inspired by the passion of our community, Girl Rising and Smart Girls will co-host an open forum: a meeting of experts, organizers and passionate global citizens to discuss what's happening and what we can do to help.

To that end, we'll also be sharing an "action pack" of tools so anyone can raise visibility about the unfolding situation -- and help build the momentum needed to get these girls home.

Go to or for more information.

Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls is a rapidly expanding online network and community movement whose aim is to help young women and the young at heart with the process of cultivating their authentic selves.

Girl Rising is a feature film and a global action campaign for girls’ education that uses the power of storytelling to spread the message that educating girls can transform societies.
