Are you a Democratic woman who wants to run for office in order to create policy for real change? 

Emerge New Mexico offers a unique, six-month, 70-hour training program to hone skills and give you the tools to win.  Every year 25 women are chosen from all over New Mexico.  So many women applied in 2019, that the class size was doubled, including four women from Grant County.  Read their stories on this website’s News Link. 

EmergeNM’s mission is “to build the bench of Democratic women ready to run for office.”  Currently there are 69 Emerge alumnae serving in public offices in the state. In the 2018 election, 37 of the 42 “Emergista” candidates won their races, for an 88 percent win-rate.

There will be another enchilada fundraiser this spring, organized by Emerge Alumna, Cindy Provencio, to support any local women accepted into EmergeNM’s 2020 Class.

To be considered for the 2021 Emerge New Mexico training program, applicants must have completed a written application on-line  (www.nm.emergeamerica.gov)  by December, 2020. Qualified applicants will be invited to an in-person interview in early January. Invitations to join the 2021 class to be extended in early February.
