On Sunday, September 29th, 2013, in Durham, North Carolina, Nusol presents the Big Hair Big Hats Naturalista Tea to inspire and uplift discussions on breaking the barriers of sexual abuse.
ALL PROCEEDS will be donated to the Durham Crisis Repsonse Center and SAFEchild. Both organizations advocate for the victims of sexual abuse and provide education to the community about sexual abuse prevention. Representatives from both organizations will educate attendees about the importance of simply talking about sexual abuse.
The goal of the Tea is to BREAK EVERY CHAIN to the strongholds of sexual abuse including its silence.
Attendees are encouraged to get Glam in their finest dresses, gloves, jewels, curls and hats while enjoying Natural Gals fellowship, a scrumptious Southern Brunch (which includes a Complimentary Mimosa AND gift bag)! There will be Games, Prizes, and Giveaways with a special Entry ticket giveaway for the 2014 NuSol Natural Hair & Beauty Expo! Andrea Richardson explains “this event isn’t JUST about good food and hair, we will be having a healthy and much needed discussion on “The Hidden Truth: Breaking the Barriers of Sexual Abuse”. Sex abuse has touched so many of our lives, yet discussing the matter is taboo. Well, we’re giving this social stigma the Big Chop! We’re bringing in several wonderful speakers and local professionals to facilitate as we speak out against abuse for the prevention of and healing of our Sistahs!”
About the Durham Crisis Response Center
For more than twenty years, the Durham Crisis Response Center has been the sole provider of comprehensive shelter and support services in the Durham area, providing counseling, legal advocacy, support groups, and shelter to survivors and their families in the aftermath of domestic or sexual violence. DCRC also offers prevention workshops and training to faith-based organizations, schools, the general public and professionals throughout the Triangle. Over the years, DCRC has helped more than 20,000 women and children. Last year alone, 170 women and children found safety at the Durham Crisis Response Center shelter, and another 1100 learned they have an ally who can help them stop the violence.
DCRC’s continuum of service includes a 24-hour, confidential crisis line for victims of domestic and sexual violence, short-term emergency shelter, hospital and court accompaniment, legal clinics with local attorneys, support groups, counseling, and referrals for job training, housing, childcare and other community services—all direct services offered to the community free of charge. We also offer educational workshops and professional training for service providers, churches, schools, police, hospitals, civic groups and other community members.

SAFEchild, an acronym for Stop Abuse For Every child, is Wake County’s only non-profit child abuse prevention agency providing direct services to children and families. SAFEchild prevents abuse by implementing four primary strategies: group parenting programs serving parents and children (group based services), new mother mentoring (home based), the SAFEchild Advocacy Center (Center based), and Funny Tummy Feelings (school based), which is presented primarily in first and second grade classrooms. Most programs are provided at no cost to the family in need of support.
SAFEchild offers exciting and meaningful volunteer opportunities for English and Spanish speakers. Volunteers are trained to mentor new mothers, lead parent education groups, facilitate children’s groups, share stories with children while their parents attend classes, or present a child abuse prevention program to first grade students in Wake County public schools.
