Attention Democratic Women:  Emerge New Mexico is now accepting applications for our 2016 Emerge Training Program.

The Emerge Program is the premier training program for Democratic women. We inspire women to run and we hone their skills to win. Our goal is to increase the number of Democratic women in public office.

Our application deadline is January 4th.

If you or someone you know is interested in running for office or working on a campaign, this will be an incredibly valuable training for you/her/him.  

The training will take place November 6th-8th in Albuquerque.  


Emerge NM was founded in March 2006. Since then we have trained almost 200 women to run for office. Our commitment to recruiting, training, and inspiring Democratic women has resulted in many successes, including the 27 alumnae in elected office today. Help us move forward and continue to provide a top-quality program by becoming a monthly sustainer of Emerge NM today.

for Democratic women candidates in New Mexico.  Emerge provides the intensive, hands-on training program to candidates that gives them the tools to be successful.  It not only takes the guesswork out of the campaign, it instills the confidence in them to work to win and helps them create a network of strong support to make it happen."

Emerge New Mexico is committed to changing the headlines by changing who is in office. We need to continue to fill the pipeline with women trained to run and lead on the issues that matter to us as Democrats. With your support, we can train more Democratic women to run and win elections at all levels of government, across the state. Will you help us with a contribution today?
