Emerge America is changing the face of American politics…
…by identifying, training and encouraging women to run for office, get elected and to seek higher office. Our intensive, cohort-based seven-month training program is unique. As the number of elected women remains flat or even declines, the need for our work is growing across the country. We currently work in 22 states: Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin. Emerge America’s role is to serve the states where we work, open new state programs and build capacity to train more women in each of our current states. We are working to open new states in the next two years to offer our programming to more women in more locations.
