I could not have succeeded without the help of Emerge Vermont. There is so much you don't know (when considering a run). Emerge turned my dreams of running for office into a reality. After just a few days of training, I felt like I could really take the plunge!

Now, more than ever, women's voices and experiences are desperately needed in the halls of Congress and in state legislatures. Emerge's commitment to training and mentoring women candidates is vital to making that happen. Encouraging more women to seek public office should be at the top of the progressive agenda.

From taking the Emerge program, I learned what a winning campaign should look like. The Emerge New Jersey  program taught us to set priorities and figure out how to stratetgically make decisions; how to use your time wisely; and how to run an entire campaign from the inside out.
