Emerge is a unique national organization that focuses on effective state programming and has built an inclusive network. We are the only political organization aimed at recruiting, training and providing a powerful network for our Emerge women with staff, alumnae, boards and volunteers on the ground 365 days each year. Since 2002, Emerge has offered a premier, in-depth training program that provides aspiring woman leaders with cutting-edge tools and training to run and win elected office. Emerge has trained over 4,000 Democratic women to run and 690 serve in elected office today.
Emerge oversees locally-based training programs, expands operations to new regions often where women’s voices are left out, partners with local political groups who empower the community and increases program offerings to meet the growing need for candidate training and alumnae networking across the country.
