Emerge Oregon Class of 2016:
Emerge Oregon recruits, trains and inspires women to run for elected office. Starting in 2009, Emerge Oregon has trained 97 women. One-third have run for office with seven now serving in the Oregon State Legislature. More broadly, women are encouraged to engage in public policy and politics in a variety of ways. The goal is to have women voices around the table on the hundreds of public boards and commissions around the state.
The intensive, cohort-based seven-month training program is unique. Participants will learn best practices in fundraising, networking and coalition building, writing a field plan and stump speech, how to get endorsements, public speaking, dealing with the media and much more! Participants will also have the opportunity to interact with Oregon's best political strategists and Emerge alumnae who have gone onto run for office.
