LAIKA: Issue  No.7 • The Haven Issue

Introducing the Haven Issue
LAIKA Issue Seven: the Haven issue invites you to create a world in which all are safe and valued. Gracing the cover is vegan actress and passionate animal advocate Harley Quinn Smith, who shares an energizing letter to Gen Z about the importance of allyship and the urgency of animal rights. Through fearless journalism and unforgettable photography, the Haven Issue disrupts oppression. We underscore the connection between animal liberation and human liberation in stories like “United We Rise,” which features intersectional activists Aph Ko and Sunaura Taylor, among other brilliant voices. The stunning feature “She Matters” makes evident how essential asserting animals as individuals is to dismantling speciesism, and why this matters so much to feminism. Throughout the issue, we celebrate dynamic vegan women like Jenné Claiborne and Madelynn De La Rosa, who are broadening vibrant spaces of creativity and compassion. We demonstrate the moral imperative of standing up for the vulnerable in stories about kitten rescuer Hannah Shaw and rhino defender Damian Mander. “The Last Place on Earth” tells the incredible story of how the First Nations communities of the Great Bear Rainforest protected their sacred land, its wildlife and our environment from a destructive pipeline. Every page of the Haven Issue is an artistic statement intended to uplift, energize and provoke discourse and action.
