The Emerge Vermont Local program, designed especially to inspire and train women to pursue local offices in Vermont, debuts in Rutland this November. Only one mayor and 21% of selectboard members in VT are women. Our towns need more women leaders to help create vibrant, sustainable futures for all Vermonters.

Voting is your right and your responsibility. Visit the VT Secretary of State's website to register, create your own voter page, and learn about voting in Vermont. Your voice is your vote!

Vote for Senator Becca Balint for the Emerge America Trailblazer Award. Becca was a member of the inaugural Emerge Vermont Class of 2014. She was elected to the Vermont Senate later that year and became the first openly gay woman elected to the Vermont Senate. Vote for our own Trailblazer by October 21st!

Eleven Emerge Vermont alumnae are running for state legislative office in 2016! Check out all of our cool alumnae and their great work to represent and advocate for Vermont and its citizens.

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.
