Emerge was able to train over 500 women to run for office in 2017. The group projects it will train over 600 women by the end of this year.
Emerge has staff on the ground in 25 states and we’re looking to launch in more states. And we also have other partners who are there to help candidates once they run. We have a much more robust infrastructure to really make sure that this isn’t just a moment — just another year of the woman — but rather, that it is something we can truly sustain going forward.
