Former NDP MLA Gwen O'Mahony (above) takes photos of people holding up signs with the hashtag #BringBackOurGirls showing concern and support for the abducted Nigerian school girls during a gathering at Central Community Park on Saturday afternoon.

Representatives from Soroptimist International of Chilliwack and Ann Davis Transition Society hosted the Bring Back Our Girls event.

In a press release, they wrote "(the girls') situation is emblematic of the kind of interference that prevents too many girls and women from getting an education all over the world."
