Haight Street Voice is a "hyper-local with a global perspective" print and online magazine founded in 2017 for the Haight Ashbury neighborhood in San Francisco.


Cover image of April 2017 IssueCommunity is more important today than possibly ever in the history of our world. This reality is why this magazine got born. Haight Street Voice is committed to alleviating cultural isolation, the loss of neighborhood character, and reversing the corporate whitewashing of our beloved Haight-Ashbury community. There is nowhere in the world like the Haight Ashbury. It’s a magical place, and the community deserves to be preserved and documented, watching the light that lit the ’60s still shining bright. We celebrate the Haight-Ashbury — and communities everywhere. HSV helps connect us to each other, keeps our stories alive (then and now) and does all it can to make sure the Haight keeps its colorful history and current vibes flowing and growing.


It is our mission to give you hyper-local attention with a global perspective, a  voice of the people for the people to help preserve the spirit of the community, the message/vibe that lit the 1960s, and to encourage the Haight-Ashbury community to honor, respect and carry on the counterculture’s messages, as well as strengthen the connection and communication between merchants, residents, tourists, homeless, old, young, and future born.  This magazine is by and for the people — to give people a voice.
