Emerge California Class of 2014 Graduation Ceremony

June 14, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Emerge California women hail from all across California and have wide and diverse professional and educational backgrounds.This year marks the 12th year that the Emerge California program has been equipping Democratic women with the skills and tools they need to run for elected office and win!

Our statistics reflect the success of the Emerge program – more than 250 women trained, half have already run for office and of those who have run, nearly 70% of them won their races.

More than 50% of our Alumnae and current Program Members are women of color, including 65% in the Class of 2014 alone.

The women in the Class of 2014 have courageously answered the call to action and are ready to serve their communities.
