Designed specifically for current candidates, Emerge California Boot Camps give self-identifying Democratic women the skills and support they need to elevate their campaigns. Top political strategists and trainers will provide attendees with the campaign tools needed to win, including training sessions and guidance on fundraising, field strategy, communications and storytelling, all within 3 days together.
Attendees who complete the Boot Camp are considered Emerge California alumnae and will have access to alumnae resources, such as the Emerge California Alumnae Directory, the opportunity to meet with the Campaign Advisory Team, and the opportunity to participate in future Emerge California continuing education sessions and activities.
Emerge California 2018 Boot Camp Alumna, Lieutenant Governor Eleni Kounalakis:
“Emerge California’s Boot Camp was a very valuable experience during my campaign for Lieutenant Governor, and I am proud to be the first Emerge California alumna elected to statewide office! As part of Emerge’s sisterhood, I am constantly inspired by the leadership, friendship and inspiration that is part of this amazing network. I encourage every woman running for office to apply to the Boot Camp!”
