Protest signs are at the forefront of LA’s protests against the killing of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and other Black people at the hands of police. In an effort to support protesters, LA artist Greg Ito has put down his paintbrush and is putting together sign-making stations. Ito sets up shop at protests around LA, and works to supply demonstrators with signs, snacks and water.
