Lions who will be speaking about the team’s “Be More than a Bystander, breaking the silence on violence against women” campaign.

The forum will be held at Chilliwack City Hall, 8550 Young Road, from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM, doors will open at 6:30 PM.

The forum is a public service event, there is no charge and children are welcome.   All members of the community are encouraged to attend.
