We are thrilled to have 257 Emerge alumnae running for office this year for seats from Town Council to United States Senate. We can't wait to see these dynamic women WIN in November!

"Women are often interested in getting something done then rather than taking the credit, so they'll do what it takes to make sure the right pieces and players are in the room. This is why Emerge's work is so important. If we are ever going to move past the gridlock in Washington, we need more women ready to lead."

There are only 20 women in the U.S. Senate today. Help us "Build the Bench" and expand our work to increase the number of Democratic women running and winning their elections at all levels!

We all know that it’s time for 'politics as usual' to change. There are plenty of reasons to avoid running for public office, but it is up to YOU to lead the way and start taking real steps towards progress. Read more about why you should apply for Emerge today.
