Emerge Michigan Prepares Democratic Women for Public Office

One of the few good things to come out of the presidential election is the enormous uptick of women who want to influence positive change.

“We haven’t had to go out and build that passion and build that wave because that wave came out of the election. Women looked at what happened, looked at the president who thinks it’s okay to grope women, and women are standing up now and saying ‘no, it’s not,'” said Beth Kelly, executive director of Emerge Michigan, the premier training program for Democratic women that inspires them to run for public office and hones their skills to win.
