When Janani emailed me for a chat earlier this year I wasn’t sure what to expect, but after talking a while I was really impressed and ready to throw my support behind her for the Assembly District 18 seat. Janani has spent her law career fighting for social justice, protecting tenants and domestic violence survivors. She has a clear understanding of how truly connected all of the issues that plague our society are, and knows that we need to be fighting for equity at all the intersections. Racial Justice is Housing Justice is Healthcare Justice is Environmental Justice is Economic Justice. I could go on, but it was truly a breath of fresh air to talk to someone who understands that solving big problems like housing, healthcare, safety, and financial security is going to require addressing the systemic injustices enshrined in our laws and even our local zoning codes.
I believe that Janani Ramachandran is the advocate for justice and equity that we need in AD18 and I am beyond excited to be supporting her run.
But you don’t have to take my word for it. May 17th from 5:30-6:30pm I’m cohosting a virtual Meet & Greet with fellow AD18 District Delegates Rodney Nickens Jr, Richard Raya, and Allyssa Victory! Register here!
