It’s an ultimatum: Boko Haram has promised to kill a Christian teen held captive for her faith.
A 16-year-old girl is being held captive by Islamic jihadists in Nigeria because she is a Christian. We must take action to save her.
Boko Haram – the Nigerian jihadist militia pledged to ISIS – stormed a village and abducted 110 schoolgirls. Five of those were killed, and 104 were freed.
Yet one brave teen named Leah Sharibu remains a prisoner because she won’t renounce her Christian faith.
Nigerian Christians are being targeted, abused, and murdered by sadistic jihadist groups like Boko Haram. Their government seems unable or unwilling to stop this violence against Christians.
We’ve delivered a critical oral intervention at the U.N. on behalf of Nigeria’s Christians. We’re sending a critical legal advocacy letter to the government of Nigeria demanding it act to free Leah.
Christian children must be protected. Leah Sharibu must be brought home safely. Now she urgently needs YOU before it’s too late.
Imagine your daughter, or your sister, being held hostage for TWO YEARS by evil, violent criminals. Today, Leah Sharibu, the Christian teenager who was abducted on February 19, 2018 by Boko Haram, the Islamic terrorist militia, will mark her second year as the vile group’s prisoner. They have...
For years, the ACLJ has been raising the alarm for Christians in Pakistan who are living their lives in constant fear of violent persecution.

Just last week, “ [t]he governor of the Boko Haram-infected Borno state in northeast Nigeria” stated that “Boko Haram’s violence has impacted over 100,000 people. . . . [and is] responsible for the creation of 59,311 orphans and 59,123 widows throughout its existence.” Indeed, Nigeria has become an...
2020 is already proving to be a deadly year for innocent Christians in Nigeria. Boko Haram – the Nigerian jihadist militia pledged to ISIS – just beheaded a Christian Pastor who weeks ago was shown in a hostage video telling the world: “Don’t cry. Don’t worry. But thank God for everything.” As...
ACLJ petitions aren’t merely names on a page but powerful tools used with governments, the media, and courts to focus attention on injustice and create real-world change. Here's how:
First, we can directly and immediately alert individual Members of Congress and other government officials of the size and scope of the public support for our initiatives. Unlike, say, White House petitions – which at best generate a response from low-level staffers – our most successful petitions have generated direct White House, State Department, and congressional responses at the highest level.
Second, we alert members of the media and can help drive national news stories as petition signatures grow.
Third, petitions not only influence foreign governments, they can provide aid and comfort to persecuted people abroad.
Finally, you can directly participate in the most critical court battles of our time. Your signature - your voice - can be represented in briefs to the Supreme Court and to federal courts across America.
