Have you considered running for office, or do you know a woman who would make a great candidate? Because as long as the majority of policymakers are male - half our nation will remain underrepresented. Will you step up to change that? #WhySheRuns

Emerge America invites you to join our annual conference and luncheon this year, "Ambition to Action: Celebrating a Historic Year for Women in Politics" on Wednesday, November 16, for post-election discussions and analysis! 

From Arizona to Kentucky to Massachusetts, there are 330 Emerge women running for office at every level of government—including 113 women running for state House, 28 for state Senate, and 5 for U.S. Congress! See the full list here.

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.
