We're thrilled that 23 alumnae have stepped to run for office in the Democratic Primary Election on August 14th. These women are running smart, grassroots campaigns all across the state. When women run, we all win.

Our 2018 Annual Event was truly a special evening, featuring inspiring speakers & performers, a joyful graduating class, and an exuberant and supportive, standing-room-only crowd. Thank you to everyone who was a part of it!

Town Meeting Day was Tuesday, March 6th. Our alumnae won 73% of their races all across Vermont. Thanks for helping to elect women!

The Emerge Vermont Board has selected Vermont State Treasurer Beth Pearce as the 2018 Governor Kunin Lifetime Achievement Award recipient. Governor Kunin will present the award to Treasurer Pearce at the Emerge Vermont Annual Celebration of Women in Politics on March 24, 2018.

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.
