Introducing Issue Eight of LAIKA

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 and when we unite to protect our sacred planet and all of its inhabitants. Grab your print or digital copy in our Online Shop now.

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, animal rescuers and vegan creators who embody the spirit of resilience and determination.

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

There’s comfort, inspiration and healing through stories and interviews with the likes of Genesis Butler, Morgan MitchellLauren ToyotaBeca Lew SkeelsBrenda Sanders, and many more community builders. We delve into the realities of full time animal rights activism, offer in depth reporting on the devastating impacts of animal agriculture, and on vigilance 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.

Writing a book is no small feat. Now imagine doing it while still in your teens. LAIKA’s one-time cover star Clara Polito has accomplished just that. Her first cookbook, Clara Cakes: Delicious and Simple Vegan Desserts for Everyone! was just published by powerHouse Books. It’s chock full of recipes for a dizzying array of creative desserts, with an entire chapter dedicated to frosting, plus sage business advice, a super handy guide to kitchen gear and egg substitutes, even a spread about why she’s vegan.
