The piece was completed on June 3-4. The piece next to this mural, reading "I am not a threat," was painted by @SplitNymph.

In the context of the Covid-19 pandemic and stay-at-home orders, many protesters thought carefully about the public health risks of protesting. The use of face masks and social distancing was common.
