The right to adequate housing is enshrined in the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights, but for millions of people, that right is either ignored, or constantly under threat. In the United States, most working class people struggle each month to pay their rent – and that’s just to maintain a roof over their heads.

On this edition, we’ll hear from people in California who are fighting to keep their homes and to preserve the unique culture of their communities.
