Brave Noise promotes safe spaces

Let’s create some noise around positive workplace culture.

The Central Alberta Sexual Assault Support Centre (CASASC) and Troubled Monk have partnered together for Brave Noise.

Brave Noise is a global collaboration beer with a very brave purpose – stepping up and speaking out for equity in the beer industry. It’s a call to fight for safe places and inclusive environments.

On October 28 Troubled Monk released Brave Noise Pale Ale with a portion of proceeds going to CASASC. Donations will help support survivors of sexual violence, specifically those who connect with the CASASC 24 hour Sexual Violence Text, Webchat and Phone Help Line.

Brave Noise is also connecting with CASASC’s newest campaign – Only Yes Means Yes (OYMY). Brave Noise and OYMY reflect on the same goal – to encourage conversation and give those who have been victimized a safe space to share their story.

“We are happy to be partnering with Troubled Monk, one of our local businesses, and be connected to the global Brave Noise initiative and their advocacy for safe places and inclusive environments for women, BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ individuals,” said CASASC Education and Community Awareness Manager Carlia Schwab. “Troubled Monk’s Brave Noise Pale Ale connects central Albertans with our OYMY consent campaign that changes how we look at and understand consent and focuses on creating a positive consent culture.”

Supporters can stop by Troubled Monk (5551 45 Street, Red Deer, AB) today to enjoy a pint or pick up a four-pack to get behind an amazing cause. Brave Noise is also available in select stores and on tap in area restaurants and bars.
