Q. What is Emerge Colorado?
A. Emerge Colorado is changing the face of Colorado politics by identifying, training and encouraging women to run for office, get elected and to seek higher office. Our intensive, cohort-based six-month training program is unique. As the number of elected Democratic women remains flat or even declines, the need for our work is growing.
In the 136 years since its statehood, Colorado has elected 0 women to the U.S. Senate, and 0 women as Governor of Colorado and 0 women as mayor of Denver. Currently, there are no state wide women elected to office.
A pool of highly qualified Democratic candidates is being left untapped. Too often, women do not see themselves running for office – they assume they aren’t experienced enough or they don’t know where to begin. Emerge Colorado is changing that! In November (2016) 7 out of 8 of our alumnae on the ballot won- that’s nearly a 90% win rate!
Emerge Colorado is at 1120 Lincoln Street, Suite 905, Denver, CO 80203
