|Kidnapped Christian teen Leah Sharibu’s heart-wrenching situation has gotten dramatically worse. And we’re taking urgent action. The Islamic militia Boko Haram abducted and threatened to murder or enslave Leah because she refuses to renounce her Christian faith.|

|Leah, who just weeks ago had her 18th birthday, recently gave birth to a SECOND CHILD of one of her captors while in the captivity of these sadistic jihadists. She’s lost every sense of her childhood. It’s infuriating. Defenseless Christians in Nigeria live in constant fear of deadly violence. Women are abducted and enslaved. Christian children aren’t safe going to school. Enough is enough. Jordan recently delivered an oral intervention to the U.N. demanding international action. |
We’re also working directly with our new Senior Counsel for Global Affairs Mike Pompeo, who placed Nigeria on a U.S. persecution watchlist when he was Secretary of State. In fact, Secretary Pompeo has said that the ACLJ was instrumental in that designation, and he’s “eager” to work with us “as we seek to put a stop to these ongoing tragedies.” We’ve just filed a written submission at the U.N. calling for urgent action to save Leah and protect Nigeria’s women and children before it’s too late, and we’re already preparing our next oral intervention in just days. Be the voice for these voiceless Christians.
Take action with us. Sign Our Petition: Save Christian Teen Leah Sharibu. Sign Our Petition: Protect Nigeria’s Dying Christians.
