This artwork was created for the social media movement "#KidsLitSafetyPins," which began on Twitter.  Author/Illustrator Jarrett J. Krosoczka proposed that Children's authors and illustrators share images of their characters wearing safety pins.  The safety pin symbolized  that the wearer is an ally for those who feel targeted by hate.
