Participants clad in green are expected at the July 4 “National Day of Protest–When Women Are Not Free” event, which starts at 5 p.m. at the Ferry Building in San Francisco. Wearing green symbolizes the international color designated for abortion rights, said organizers with Rise Up for Abortion Rights Bay Area.
