There was a time, way back when in the early days of Twitter, that I used to recommend Portland Twitter accounts for folks to follow. While that’s not something I do on a regular basis anymore, there are certain times where I feel motivated to rekindle that effort. Like today, when I realized that the Portland Wall of Moms has a Twitter account.
Not familiar with the Wall of Moms? It’s a group of mothers who have begun showing up at the Portland protests to stand on the frontlines and protect protestors.
The group of women formed what could be called a human shield dubbed the “wall of moms” at the front of a protest outside a federal courthouse on Sunday, and videos on social media showed the group chanting, “Moms are here, feds stay clear” and “Leave our kids alone.”
And yes, since you asked, there’s a dad version forming, as well.
