Infographic: Downtown College Prep Students Oppose Moving of Campus, And Say It Will Harm Their Education

Exodus From "The Jungle": Photo Chronicle of the Closing Days of the Nation's Largest Homeless Encampment
For decades, a creekbed in East San Jose has become a homeless encampment for hundreds of San Jose residents who've lost homes, jobs, families and have no place else to go. But today, "The Jungle," what it's mostly known as, has been shutdown by the City of San Jose. As police supervised, bulldozers wiped the area clean and the homes people made for themselves are now gone. Photographer Jean Melesaine went to meet with the people the night before forced removal, and photographer Charisse Domingo went to meet residents in the morning of its shutdown while people scrambled to see what to do next. At 6am, residents were woken with flashlights, police, and clean-up crews in hazmat suits. These are the photos of a community in Silicon Valley, one of the richest regions in the world, who are now searching for a new home.
