Virginia is the birthplace of Presidents, and home to the oldest continuous law-making body in the world. We believe that it is high time we had our fair share of women serving at all levels of elected office here. Emerge Virginia is dedicated to getting more Democratic women into elected office by offering comprehensive, top-notch training to women of all ages from communities across the state.
The barriers to entry into the political scene can seem pretty imposing to the average citizen, but in a state that has never elected its fair share of women, those barriers can look even more foreboding. Emerge Virginia will lower those barriers and level the playing field by de-mystifying the process of getting engaged, and connecting women to the knowledge and resources needed to win.
