The Perseverance Issue, our 8th edition, is here to uplift you, give you strength and remind you that we are at our best when we help one another. We are at our best when we serve our communities, support one another and when we unite to protect our sacred planet and all of its inhabitants.

Our cover features the LA-based vegan chef and community activist Lorena Ramirez who is proudly centering her Mexican heritage in her mission to make veganism inclusive to all. Inside are stories of activists, rescuers and creators who embody the spirit of resilience and determination.

Throughout the issue, we celebrate courage, fortitude and altruism.

And offer you comfort, inspiration and healing through stories and interviews with the likes of Morgan Mitchell, Lauren Toyota, Beca Lew Skeels, Genesis Butler, Brenda Sanders, and many more community builders. We delve into the realities of full time animal rights activism, offer in depth reporting on low waste living, and on being vigilant in upholding equality and justice.

WE are here for you. We are steadfast in our mission to shift society through art and to inspire others to reject exploitation in all of its forms. LAIKA’s 8th issue is available in our online store in print or digital.
