LOMBARD – The Lombard Area American Association of University Women will partner with branches from Downers Grove and Elmhurst to host a program Wednesday on sexual harassment in the military.

The events begins at 7 p.m. at First Church of Lombard, 220 S. Main St., and is free to the public.

The speaker at the event is Daniele Hoffman, who enlisted in the Indiana National Guard when she was 17. She will tell about the incidents of sexual harassment and assault she says she experienced while serving.
