Supporting Sexual assault survivors, seeking proactive
change, and preventing future aggression
The Shine a Light beer collab simply exists to support sexual assault survivors and seek proactive change to prevent any future aggression. With the amazing work that the Joyful Heart Foundation does and by extension, End the Backlog, along with local and national crisis efforts, we believe proactive change is possible and in action if we include it in the beer industry.
We at Hana Koa Brewing support survivors of sexual assault and misconduct. We produce craft beer with care and love, therefore we do not condone perpetrators blaming their actions on alcohol.
We stand firm that it is not a victim’s fault if they are assaulted- no matter how intoxicated they may be. Being intoxicated is also not an excuse to take advantage of someone else’s body.
We are working towards a safer industry for all. This wasn’t created to be just a beer. We stand with our fellow humans that have survived misconduct. We stand with you, we believe you, and your experience is not going unnoticed.
We would love to invite all breweries that would like to be a part of this important cause, to stand with survivors and make a statement that the product we produce is not to blame – that we will hold perpetrators accountable for their actions and not on a beverage.
