Emerge California Events


Class of 2020 Welcome Reception
Come meet the new Emerge California Class of 2020!
Saturday | 1.25.20 | 6:00 – 7:30 PM | Oakland

Join us as we welcome nearly 70 women from across the state into the Emerge California candidate training program. Meet the new class of 2020, and fellow Emerge California Alumnae and elected officials!

Over 100 Emerge California alumnae hold elected office, from school board to the state legislature. Come meet your next elected official in the making and show your support for Emerge California!

The Honorable Malia Cohen, Chair of the State Board of Equalization, will be joining us to welcome the Class of 2020. After training with Emerge California, she made her way through the political pipeline and knows what it takes to run! Malia is the perfect guest to inspire our next class of elected officials in the making – and all of us cheering them on.
You won’t want to miss this energizing night!

Enjoy appetizers and a cash bar at this reception-style gathering (no formal dinner served). Sponsors may purchase tables for reserved seating. All allies in the movement are welcome and encouraged to attend this family-friendly event!

Annual Southern California Reception
Celebrating Emerge California alumnae who ran in the March Primary!
Thursday | 3.19.20 | 6:00 – 8:00 PM | Los Angeles

This spring, we will come together to celebrate the Emerge California alumnae who ran in the March Primary!

Women in office fight diligently for our values, lift our communities and speak out against injustice, yet they only account for 30% elected representation in California — together, we can change that.

Join Emerge California in celebrating the women who are moving us forward to a more reflective democracy. Sponsor today to ensure we can continue to train women Democratic candidates in 2020 and beyond!
