Andrea Haverkamp is a PhD student in Environmental Engineering and Queer Studies at Oregon State University. Her personal mission is to advance social justice and gender equity in engineering. She is the host of Labour Wave, a radical, leftist working class podcast in Corvallis. We’ll reveal some of the “renters’ nightmares” scenarios that we and others have experienced in Corvallis. We’ll get into the nuts and bolts of the renter’s squeeze in Corvallis, the cause, and some of the legal and creative actions that can be taken to address this citywide / regional problem.
