PHOTOS: Silicon Valley's Low-Income Residents March to Google and Apple

Silicon Valley's homeless, disabled, and elderly marched 30 miles from East San Jose to Google's headquarters in Mountain View to bring attention to the rise in poverty locally as the corporation avoids paying billions in taxes through offshore shell companies. They called the march "Heal the Valley." When arriving at Google, the group, lead by the Community Homeless Alliance Ministry, also united with the Service Employee International Union (SEIU) for an action: chanting, drumming, and praying in the middle of Google's lunch patio. The marchers held a similar rally at Apple's headquarters the day before. Marchers say their Heal the Valley pilgrimage will continue to meet and organize to challenge the growing inequity in Silicon Valley. Photography by Charisse Domingo.
