Emerge California’s signature training equips leaders with the resources, knowledge, connections and community of support necessary for a successful campaign for office. Since 2002, we have recruited, trained and supported over 700 Democratic self-identified women across California. When Emerge California alumnae run for office, they win nearly 70% of the time.
Emerge California’s signature program is a 6-month, intensive training program for Democratic self-identified women who are planning to run for elected office. We are intentional about recruiting Democratic self-identified women from groups that have been historically underrepresented in politics, including Black women, non-Black women of color, Indigenous women, and LGBTQ+ women. 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.
Have YOU ever thought about changing the world as an elected leader?
