Students and faculty at St. Hubert Catholic High School for Girls in Northeast Philadelphia showed their support for the more than 250 girls kidnapped in Nigeria last month. The entire school community wore red on Friday, May 9 to show their support for this cause. During all homeroom classes, students simultaneously used their social media accounts and joined the ongoing global campaign using the hashtags #BringBackOurGirls and #BambiePower. In addition, teachers in each homeroom class took the opportunity to raise the students’ awareness of the issue. Read more about it here. (Photos by Sarah Webb)
