Whatever it is disrupt business-as-usual for 19 minutes and 73 seconds. Get green, wear Green EVERYWHERE––
Everyone else: From healthcare workers, to transit workers, lyft drivers, restaurant workers to restaurant owners, everywhere find ways to STOP EVERYTHING TO SAVE ROE for 19 minutes and 73 seconds.

June 3-5: GET OUT AND GREEN UP WEEKEND!
In bold, creative, furious and joyful ways, gather and slather yourselves in green and get out everywhere spreading the green.
This could start with 5 pm gatherings on Friday night that turn into marches or parades through the nightlife districts – chanting past outdoor dining and drinking and theaters and concerts and other places people gather. Bring bullhorns and lots of green bandanas and stickers to spread! Take this fight into people’s lives – and bring them into taking up the green on the spot, signing up on the RiseUp4AbortionRights.org website, following our social media, posting their own pictures and footage of our marches as well as themselves donning the green on their own social media platforms with the hashtag #Green4Abortion.
Organize progressive religious institutions to incorporate #Green4Abortion into their religious services at Mosques, Synagogues, and Churches.
Monday, June 6: OVERTURN ROE? OVER OUR DEAD BODIES! DISRUPTIVE DIE-INS.
Grab 5 people or 500, gather at some place bound to get attention and do a disruptive die-in aimed at getting the attention of those who pass, getting out on social media, and getting in the major media. Should this be done at a crowded shopping mall? in a busy plaza or transit hub? in front of a tunnel or the middle of a freeway? Yes! The possibilities are endless.
We’ll be posting videos of past die-ins, and tips for how to do this well so be sure to follow @Rise4AbortionRights
At graduation, young people are told to think about the future they will go work towards for themselves… but the bigger question is what kind of future will confront society and the world as a whole if the right to abortion (and all that would follow in its wake) are taken away?!
Students and families and friends organize to color your graduations #Green4Abortion in many different ways. Decorate your caps or robes, Wear bright green makeup, bandanas, or scarves and fight for as much of your class to do it with you as you can get! Post on social media with #GreenYourGraduation
