Episode 175 - Rent Eats First
This week, Roqayah and Kumars are joined by returning guest Shanti Singh, communications coordinator with the California statewide renters' rights group Tenants Together.
Shanti discusses the challenges of navigating the landscape of housings advocacy, and how a pandemic and unprecedented unemployment numbers have turned already challenging campaigns for housing rights into minefields for renters and activists alike.
Shanti also helps us tackle the intersection of class disparity and police repression, and how the police further housing insecurity in order to protect the property owning class while homelessness surges and Black communities face increased racial segregation.
