Join us in Raising Awareness and Supporting Sexual Assault Survivors
The City of Lakeport and the Lakeport Police Department, in conjunction with the Lake Family Resource Center (LFRC), are raising awareness and supporting sexual assault survivors in our community.
The City Council will present a proclamation to LRFC designating April as Sexual Assault Awareness month. The Lakeport Public Works Department will light the downtown street lights in teal beginning April 1.
All Lakeport Police cars and officer’ uniforms will have a teal ribbon displayed throughout the month.
Susie Q’s Donuts, 414 S. Main Street, will make donuts with teal-colored frosting, with one hundred percent of the sale proceeds donated to the LFRC Sexual Assault Awareness Fund.
The public is encouraged to participate in Denim Day on Wednesday, April 28, and wear jeans to protest against sexual violence. In support of Denim Day, Lakeport Police Officers are authorized to wear jeans for their uniform pants from Friday, April 23, through Friday, April 30.
We encourage the public to join us in raising awareness and supporting sexual assault survivors throughout the month of April: buy teal-colored donuts, wear an article of teal-colored clothing, or wear jeans on April 28.
