Emerge is a unique national organization that focuses on effective state programming and has built an inclusive network. Emerge is changing the face of politics to create an inclusive democracy. We are the nation's premier organization that recruits, trains and provides a powerful network to Democratic women who want to run for office.
We seek to recruit and train leaders who reflect the communities they serve and have the life experiences that allow them to reimagine and rebuild our institutions in the fight for a just and equitable world. The Emerge training program is a unique opportunity for Democratic women who want to run for public office. It is the only in-depth, six-month, 70-hour, training program that inspires candidates to run and gives them the tools to win. As an Emerge program member, you become a part of a supportive network which includes a national network of Emerge alumnae, Emerge board and advisory council members.
