Hundreds of San Franciscans affected by rising rents and Ellis Act evictions are rallying at the State Capitol Tuesday.

The Ellis Act allows landlords to evict tenants when taking a building off the rental market. Tuesday's rally is demanding a stop to those evictions.

Demonstrators are also showing support for a new State Senate bill that would help build housing for low and middle income residents.
