WHICH SIDE ARE YOU ON?
#Green4Abortion Bandana Day

Have students at your school ansewer a basic questionaire or take a poll on your social media. If they are for the legal right to abortion the need to SHOW IT! Other ways to do this could be a lunchroom announcement, stang up on the cafeteria table and have people who support abortion rights come to you and get a green bandana, ribbon, sticker, or other way to showcase what side they are on! 

Tip

Start planning how to showcase your green now. Order bandanas or stickers from our website, or go get green ribbon to make pins. DM us on social media with questions. Ask students to donate $1 or $2 to cover the costs!
