Tenants United Corvallis
Rent Strikes with Liza Featherstone and Tenants United Corvallis
Two part episode on Laborwave. Our first segment features tenant organizers Kali Doten & Travis Whitehead from Tenants United Corvallis, a committee within the Mid-Valley IWW. They speak about localized efforts to scale up a rent strike and the ensuing challenges in organizing amid the existing pandemic and social distancing.
We follow that segment with a conversation with Liza Featherstone, a journalist and journalism professor whose work focuses on labor struggles and student activism and has been featured in The Nation and Jacobin. Her recent piece for Jacobin, On Strike- No Rent, serves as the baseline for our discussion.
