The Emerge Network of States

Since 2002 Emerge states have recruited, inspired, and
trained over 4,000 women to run for elected office.

The Emerge Model

When Emerge launches a new state program, we identify the top women elected officials, activists, and Democratic leaders in the state and leverage their collective experience to build the strongest organization possible. In this way, each Emerge state is truly community-based. Because Emerge is building a powerful Democratic political network of participants, alumnae, board and advisory board members, and trainers, Emerge is creating a new Democratic women’s movement, dedicated to changing the face of power, the face of politics, and the face of leadership in this country.
