REDDING, Calif. - One group in Shasta County is looking to add a splash of color to the Downtown Redding area.

Local LGBTQ+ group Wolfpack Clubhouse would like to see a rainbow crosswalk. Ideal locations would be near the Cascade Theater or near Sundial Bridge.

Wolfpack Clubhouse says an LGBTQ+ rainbow crosswalk would show acceptance, create awareness, and build a stronger community.

“To bring a symbol, an established symbol, such as the LGBTQ+ in our community, would show a greater acceptance for everyone,” Addie Carter said, the public affairs officer for the Wolfpack Clubhouse. “It would generate a conversation, it would generate awareness, and it would help us build our community stronger together.”

Wolfpack Clubhouse says it’s still in the planning stages and doesn’t have a set date as to when they will bring this to the city of Redding.

So far more than 1000 people signed the petition.

Other cities like San Francisco, Seattle, and San Diego also have rainbow crosswalks.
