On this week’s bonus episode of Lever Time Premium, exclusively for The Lever’s supporting subscribers: Producer Frank Cappello sits down with Tara Raghuveer, campaign director for the People’s Action Home Guarantee campaign, which is fighting to enshrine federal protections for tenants, including rent control and an affordable housing guarantee.

Tara breaks down how corporate concentration has contributed to skyrocketing rents, how this impacts working-class renters, and what the government can do to create long-term affordable housing.
