Emerge CA Recruitment Salon in Napa/Solano/Contra Costa
August 4, 2017 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM PDT
Dear California MWPs:
Emerge California will be coming to Recruitment Salons in Northern California. Emerge CA aims to train Democratic women and get them elected to incite change in politics.
From Emerge CA:
“Emerge CA has and will continue to train fierce democratic women from around the State to run and win public office. I’m clear where my political home is. I’m an Emerge Women.” – Lateefah Simon, Bart Board of Directors Emerge Class of 2009
Like many of us, I am sure you are wincing every time you turn on the news. The headlines are filled with policy and political conversations that do not reflect the needs of your community- But you do! Here’s the sign you have been waiting for.
What sets Emerge CA apart from every other training program?
Our intensive five-month training program is the only one of its kind in California, and includes hands on instruction in fundraising, field, polling, communications and more. After completing the program, graduates have the skills necessary to run a successful campaign and a peer group and political network to draw on.
Over 400 Democratic women have graduated from Emerge’s program and and 70% of Emerge Graduates who run- WIN!
Here’s what our Elected Emerge Alumnae have to say about the program:
“Emerge CA gave me both the technical tools and supportive community to get me– and keep me– in office.” – Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf (Class of 2009)
“It’s not just a program it’s an amazing network of fabulous, thoughtful, and interesting women…my most valuable help during the campaign came from my Emerge sisters who literally walked the walk with me.” – Alameda City Councilwoman Malia Vella (Class of 2013)
Apply here by September 1st and visit the Recruitment Salon in Benicia on August 4th at 6 PM. Address details below.
