#BringBackOurGirls: 6 Celebrities Advocating the Release of the Nigerian Schoolgirls

The mass kidnappings of nearly 300 Nigerian schoolgirls on April 15 by Islamic extremists caused an uproar that could be heard around the globe. Over a month later, these innocent youngsters have still not been returned to their families. According to Fox News, 500 Nigerian traditional hunters armed with homemade guns, poisoned spears and amulets have banded together and say they are awaiting military backing to get moving with their mission to get their girls back. The decision for these hunters to gather together comes as many citizens continue to accuse Nigeria's military of not doing enough to rescue their abducted schoolgirls.

While Nigeria's people work on trying to rescue these girls, 6 Latino celebrities have been advocating for the release of the Nigerian schoolgirls via social media, on the red carpet, and on TV with #BringBackOurGirls:
