Follow Hillary’s Lead is all about inspiring Democratic women to run.
Launched by Emerge America, Follow Hillary’s Lead is a campaign designed to increase the number of Democratic women running for office in 2016. This historical moment of Hillary Clinton’s candidacy comes at a time when all sectors of U.S. society are examining questions of power, leadership, gender, and race. The Follow Hillary’s Lead campaign specifically targets sectors and demographics of women that are often overlooked in traditional candidate recruitment: mothers, businesswomen, teachers, law enforcement, young women, and seniors. Emerge America is working with our partners to recruit and inspire more women to run for office, as well as educate and engage the public on broader issues of women and political leadership. 2016 isn’t just the year of one woman—let’s make it the year of many women!
