Sparked by scenes in Portland, a group calling themselves “Wall of Moms Bay Area” (@wallofmomsbayarea on Instagram) has started organizing to help protect protesters in the Bay.

Their stated mission is to learn how to protest safely, to stay silent and support Black activists by forming a front-line using their privilege to protect others.

The group’s first protest is in Oakland, the Bay Area city named by Trump. Sat, July 25, 7:30pm at Oscar Grant Plaza.See the facebook event post.
