The Emerge Vermont network celebrated women in elected office on April 16th in Middlebury. Nearly 100 people joined the celebration, honoring retiring Representative Betty Nuovo for 30 years of service in the VT General Assembly, and women in office throughout the state.

Congratulations to the 17 most recent graduates of our 5-month training program. These women join a growing network across Vermont who seek to strengthen our democracy by ensuring that qualified women are ready to run for office and change the face and voice of politics at every level of government.

To tell our story through our first two years, we are delighted to present you with our very first annual report! We hope you will take a few minutes to view our annual report online.

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.
