Emerge is changing the face of power, the face of politics, and the face of leadership in this country in order to see Democratic policies that are more responsive and elected officials who better reflect and represent American citizens. We inspire women to run; we hone their skills to win. Our goal is clear: to double the number of Democratic women in public office.
Since 2002 Emerge States have recruited, inspired, and trained over 1500 women to run for elective office. Our network is growing fast and we currently have 14 states.
When Emerge America launches a new state program, we identify the top women elected officials, activists, and Democratic leaders in the state and leverage their collective experience to build the strongest organization possible. In this way, each Emerge state is truly community-based. Because we are building a powerful Democratic political network of participants, alumnae, board and advisory board members, and trainers, we are creating a new Democratic women's movement, dedicated to changing the face of power, the face of politics, and the face of leadership in this country.
If your state is not listed above and you are interested in running for office, please call our office at 415-344-0323.
