Emerge Arkansas

Just launched!

Emerge Arkansas will recruit, train and provide a powerful network for Democratic women who want to run for office across the state. Please consider a donation today!

Emerge Arkansas will level the playing field by recruiting and training Democratic women who want to run for office, but who may feel they lack the necessary knowledge or connections to mount a successful campaign.

Women make up 50.9% of Arkansas’s population, but only 18.5% of the state legislature. Arkansas currently has does not have a single Democrat, let alone Democratic woman, holding statewide executive office and only 5 women have ever served as senators or congresspeople in Arkansas, and 3 of the 5 only served to complete unexpired terms caused by the death of their husbands. The percentage of women serving in the Arkansas state legislature is currently lower than it was in 2007. Furthermore, a woman of color from Arkansas has never served in Congress or in a statewide executive office.

 This is why Arkansas needs Emerge Arkansas now!

Emerge Arkansas will:

  • Recruit women to run for office at all levels of government
  • Train them to run effective campaigns and win races
  • Provide a powerful network to support women running for office
