Nkechi Ogbodo runs a New York nonprofit organization that pays the tuition of high school girls in Nigeria and mentors girls in Harlem. When she learned that close to 300 schoolgirls were kidnapped in her home country, she felt that she had to do something.
Ogbodo organized a rally at the Nigerian consulate on May 10, where more than 100 people including New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and Rev. Al Sharpton attended. Melissa Noel spoke with Ogbodo in this video.
