n support of Domestic Violence Awareness, the Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment RCMP and members of the Purple Lights Night committee, which consists of various community partners, will be hosting a Community Forum on Thursday, October 30, 2014.


The purpose of the forum is to educate the community as to what resources are available for someone who may be a victim of violence or knows someone who is a victim. It will also host Angus Reid, from the BC Lions, who will be speaking about their “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 opening 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.  


"Through education and awareness we can diminish the negative effects of Domestic Violence in our communities, and ensure the community is aware of resources available to help.  We are excited to have Angus attend our forum this year to talk about breaking the silence and being more than a bystander when it comes to Domestic Violence," says one of the organizers Cpl. Harinder Kheleh.


This forum is part of the continuing Purple Lights Domestic Violence Awareness campaign taking place throughout October.
