Emerge: Allow us to Reintroduce Ourselves

For far too long, the American government has not reflected the nation, with women being under represented at all levels of government. For 15 years, Emerge has steadily worked toward increasing Democratic women’s representation in local, state, and federal elected offices through candidate recruitment and training programs. But, as demographics transform over the next 15 years with Black, Brown and Indigenous, unmarried, under 40 and LGBTQ+ women making up the majority of the country, the organization announced its plan to accelerate this work so that more Democratic women representing this New American Majority hold elected and appointed office.
