HEMPSTEAD, NY — April 13, 2015 — Hempstead Board of Education President Lamont Johnson and Mayor Wayne Hall will join NAACP officials and hundreds of Hempstead High School students at the high school tomorrow, April 14, 2015, at 11am, in a rally and press conference for the release of 270 Nigerian girls who were kidnapped by the Boko Haram terrorist organization exactly one year ago. Red ribbons will be tied to trees outside the high school as a reminder of the girls’ plight.

Johnson will address the rally, along with other district and village officials. Student leaders are also expected to make remarks.

The girls were taken from their school in Chibok, Nigeria by the terrorist group and many were forced into marriages with older members of Boko Haram. Most of the girls remain missing to this day despite efforts by African countries and assistance from the United States.

Rallies have been held around the country in support of rescuing the girls. Other events will take place until the girls are found and released.
