Our Network of States
Since 2002 Emerge States have recruited, inspired, and trained over 1000 women to run for elective office. Our network is growing fast and we currently have 14 states including our first southern program in Kentucky, which launched in 2009:
When Emerge America 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 we are building a powerful Democratic political network of participants, alumnae, board and advisory board members, and trainers, we are 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.
