→ Janani Ramachandran first came to impress ACCE members when she ran for Assembly in the 2021 special election. Janani attended a virtual candidate forum co-hosted by ACCE and Courage California, and she presented a clear progressive vision for the district. It was clear back then that she had a promising trajectory, and now her trajectory leads her towards Oakland City Council in CD 4. With her progressive bonafides, and her willingness to engage community stakeholders, Janani has earned ACCE’s trust and support. We look forward to counting Janani as a partner and ally within City Hall, to help us win the battles worth fighting for.
