Emerge CA focuses on Nevada County to elect Democratic women

Emerge California is changing the face of California politics by identifying, training and inspiring Democratic women to run for public office, get elected and seek higher office,” according to a new posting on its website.

“This year, we are launching a new county-based initiative to recruit women to participate in our regional training programs. Each year through 2020, Emerge will identify counties where Democrats can win and where there is an under-representation of women in public office.

“For the 2016-2017 program year, Emerge California has chosen Nevada County and hopes to work closely with local women’s political and Democratic organizations to not only identify potential women candidates, but to strengthen the organizational capacity of women’s groups to train, support and advocate for the election of women.

“Emerge California will host an initial briefing and organizing meeting to further discuss the initiative.

“We’d like to invite you to join the conversation.

“Let’s work together to build the bench and fill the political pipeline throughout Nevada County with talented women who are ready to lead!”
