Emerge Mississippi

In Development: Emerge Mississippi is currently raising seed funding.

Emerge Mississippi 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 to help it launch!

Emerge Mississippi 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 51% of Mississippi’s population, but only 17% of the State House and 12% of the State Senate. Mississippi has consistently ranked near the bottom for its share of state legislative seats held by women and has never had a female governor. Mississippi has never elected a Democratic woman to Congress and none of Mississippi’s five largest cities with elected Mayors has woman mayor. Furthermore, only one Democratic woman has held a state-wide office in Mississippi.

 This is why Mississippi needs Emerge Mississippi now!

Emerge Mississippi 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
