EAST ORANGE, NJ – Precious Little Ladies (PLL), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization will host its first ever Family Empowerment Fair on Saturday, June 16th, 2018 from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM. The event, which will be located at 344 Prospect Ave East Orange, NJ, looks to give participants the information and resources needed to protect themselves and loved ones from sexual abuse, domestic violence, and sexual assault. The Family Empowerment Fair will host several workshops including a free self-defense class, a social media etiquette workshop, and a sexual abuse awareness seminar. The event is open to both adults and children to help raise awareness and increase the early knowledge of these issues.
PLL was established in 2015 by Aziza Kibibi in response to her own need for support services after personally overcoming trauma and abuse during her childhood and young adulthood. The organization seeks to provide survivors of child molestation, domestic violence, and sexual assault with the knowledge and support they may need after experiencing such traumas. Through further events, workshops, and promotions, Kibibi and her team aspire to aid the prevention of future incidents of abuse from occurring.
PLL supplies women and children assistance through their Survivor Support Group (SSG) which gives victims a safe place to share their experiences and gain support from other members. The groups meet on a monthly basis. As well as the SSG, the organization provides programs like “Girl, We’ve Got You Covered”® (GWGYC) which helps donate health and beauty products to women and children escaping abuse to assist them on their roads to recovery. These items include, but are not limited to, toiletries, makeup, and feminine products that many recovery shelters often times do not distribute.
When asked about the event, Aziza states "We've designed this fair in a way that makes it easy for the community to identify resources in and around the community. Asking for help with issues such as child abuse and sexual assault is hard enough. PLL wants to make finding who to ask as easy as possible."
