Please join us as we celebrate the hard work and accomplishment of the Class of 2018 at Rising Tide Brewery in Portland from 4p-6p!

Emerge Maine held its first ever Boot Camp for women running for legislature in 2018! Please meet our alumnae/candidates!


"I support and encourage Emerge Maine in its important work. The training and inspiration that they provide for Democratic women to run for public office is a shining example of how individuals can empower themselves and make a difference in their communities." -Congresswoman Chellie Pingree

Emerge Maine has recruited, trained and inspired nearly 250 Maine women. We change lives! All donations go directly to recruiting, training and supporting the next crop of Democratic women leaders! Support Emerge Maine with a contribution today!

We all know that it's time for 'politics as usual' to change. There are plenty of reasons to avoid running for public office, but it is up to YOU to lead the way and start taking real steps towards progress. Read more about why you should apply for Emerge today.
