Louisiana Flood Relief – Heine Brothers’ & the American Red Cross

In Blog, Community, News // on August 22nd, 2016 // by // No comment

 

Devastating floods in Louisiana have displaced thousands of people – people that have lost everything. In some parishes, around 75% of homes have been called a “total loss”. The American Red Cross is estimating that they’ll serve 1.2 million meals during their flood efforts – and Heine Brothers’ wants to help.

For each LARGE drink sold at all Heine Brothers’ and Vint Coffee locations this week, we’ll donate 25¢ to the American Red Cross for their Louisiana Flood Relief Efforts.

Heine Brothers’ Coffee has long been a community partner with Olmsted Parks Conservancy – that’s even how Mike Mays and Chuck Schnatter, HB co-owners, met. The parks here in Louisville – Olmsted Parks Conservancy with Metro Parks, The Parklands of Floyd’s Fork, along with Waterfront Park – are an important part of our community. Not only do they give us a place to play, they are also home to thousands of species, cut our carbon footprint, and bring a high quality of life to the city.

Denim Day Press Conference with The Center for Women and Families

In Blog, Community, Louisville // on May 1st, 2016 // by // No comment

We were honored to host our friends and community partners from the Center for Women and Families at HB-Douglass Loop for their Denim Day press conference – bringing awareness and correcting misperceptions about sexual assault.

Speakers included:

  • Marta Miranda, CEO of the Center for Women and Families
  • Amanda Corzine, RN – SANE Nurse at U of L Hospital
  • Mike Mays, President & Co-owner of Heine Brothers’ Coffee
  • David Yates, President of the Louisville Metro Council
  • Patti Barron, a sexual assault survivor
  • Lieutenant Carolyn Nunn, Commander of the Louisville Police Department’s Special Victims Unit

Denim Day began in Italy in 1999 when the Italian High Court overturned a rape conviction because the victim was wearing tight jeans; the court concluded that she must have helped take them off, implying consent. Women of the Italian legislature protested by wearing jeans the next day, and the observance of Denim Day worldwide had begun. Today, all around the world, organizations coordinate community-wide Denim Day events to show support of survivors, and to raise awareness of, and correct misperceptions about, sexual assault crimes.

Heine Brothers’ is proud to be a long time partner of the Center for Women and Families. We’d love to live in a world where sexual assault no longer exists – but until we get there, Heine Brothers’ will support The Center for Women & Families in the work they do preventing assault and supporting victims.

Join us in the White Ribbon Campaign.

In Blog, Community, News // on March 31st, 2016 // by // One comment

The month of April is Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month. This year, Heine Brothers’ is teaming with The Center for Women and Families and their Own It Initiative for the launch of the White Ribbon Kentuckiana campaign.

What is the White Ribbon Campaign?

The White Ribbon Campaign is the world’s most effective initiative to engage and mobilize men and boys to prevent sexual and domestic violence.

White Ribbon Kentuckiana begins with a relatively simple pledge – that men:

  • will not condone gender-based violence
  • will speak out against gender-based violence, and
  • will take action to end gender-based violence
  • commit to creating a society free from gender-based violence

 

Why is this focused towards men?

Men have a particularly critical role to play in responding to and preventing sexual violence, largely because they have been notably absent from the efforts. The value that men have in responding and preventing sexual violence is in part based on men’s position as community members — we all have a role to play in ending sexual assault. But also because men as a collective have a different relationship to the social norms that allow some men to continue to perpetrate sexual violence.  Because of men’s different relationship to these norms as compared to women, men have a unique opportunity to disrupt these social norms.

Want can you do?

  • Attend Take Back the Night on Wednesday March 30 at the Red Barn at U of L.
  • Stop by your neighborhood Heine Brothers’ and pick up your own pledge card and white ribbon.
  • Talk to the men in your life about sexual violence, and encourage them to speak out and take action. Prevention is key.
  • Invite the men you know to wear the White Ribbon and to join the efforts of the Own It Initiative in our community.
