We can't rest now! With an eye on the big election year in 2016, we are preparing to train women to run for office all across Vermont. Can you Spring for Emerge Vermont with a gift of $25, $50, $100 or more?
Senator-elect Becca Balint from Windham county is the first openly lesbian women to win a Senate seat in VT and Representative-elect Kiah Morris is the first African-American woman elected to the House in over 25 years.
Emerge Vermont is changing the face of Vermont politics by identifying, training and encouraging women to run for office, get elected and to seek higher office. Our intensive, cohort-based six-month training program is unique. As the number of elected Democratic women remains flat or even declines, the need for our work is growing.
