Over 100 people gathered at San Jose City Hall to protest the federal sequester cuts to Section 8 tenants, which is pushing families into homelessness. One woman, Laura, testified how her rent was increased from $90 to $835 a month. Her total monthly income is $516. Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren was present to accept over 800 petitions collected by community members calling for an end to the cuts. Photos by Charisse Domingo.
