      Dozens rally at RI State House in support of Nigeria girls

      Dozens of people rally at the Rhode Island State House on Friday in support of the nearly 300 schoolgirls kidnapped by a militant group in Nigeria.

      Dozens of people rallied Friday at the Rhode Island State House in support of the nearly 300 schoolgirls kidnapped by an Islamic extremist group in Nigeria.

      For local supporters, it was important for them to show world leaders that saving the girls is at the forefront of everyone's thoughts.

      Providence Mayor Angel Taveras was at the rally to show support for the cause, while U.S. Rep. David Cicilline announced that he has co-sponsored a resolution condemning the act.

      Demonstrations in support of the missing Nigerian girls have been held around the world, and a social media campaign dubbed #BringBackOurGirls continues to grow.
