The City of Lakeport and the Lakeport Police Department, in conjunction with the Lake Family Resource Center (LFRC) are raising awareness and support of sexual assault survivors in our community. To this end, the City Council will present a proclamation to LRFC designating April as Sexual Assault Awareness month and Lakeport Public Works will light the downtown in teal beginning April 1.
All Lakeport Police cars and officers uniforms will have a teal ribbon displayed throughout the month. Local business, Susie Q’s Donuts, will be making donuts with teal colored frosting, with 100% of the sale’s proceeds donated to the LFRC Sexual Assault Awareness Fund.
The public is encouraged to participate in Denim Day on Wednesday, April 28th is Denim Day and everyone is encouraged to 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 23rd through Friday April 30th.
We encourage members of the public to join us in raising awareness and supporting sexual assault survivors throughout the month of April. Join us by buying some teal colored donuts, and wearing an article of teal colored clothing or wearing jeans on April 28th.
