Do you want to continue seeing more Democratic women run for elected office? Here are a few ways you can help make that happen:
Recommend a Woman to Emerge - If you know a woman you believe should run for office, please let her know about Emerge. Also share her information with us so we can include her in any future application and class updates. Send her name, location and contact information (phone, email) to email@example.com.
Become a monthly contributor - This is an easy way to support Emerge and the women we train. You can go to our website (www.EmergeWI.org) and make this contribution monthly.
Bring Emerge Wisconsin to you - Emerge will be hitting the road soon, traveling Wisconsin, talking about the importance of running for office and recruiting our future Emerge alumnae! If you would like to have Emerge come speak to your group, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
