Upcoming Emerge Training Announced

by Jillian Schoene
Executive Director, Emerge Oregon

Reaching out to you today to share about an upcoming training opportunity for active Democratic women candidates (or newly active) – and also an early head’s up about our application deadline for the Emerge Oregon Class of 2021.
The first opportunity is a virtual training on Saturday, August 8th and Sunday, the 9th. All Democratic women are welcome to register, but I’m particularly interested in candidates running for city council this November. I want to help these women get up and running – and heading in the right direction from the start - in a supportive setting with other women candidates. (For active candidates, this expenditure would need to be reported to the state as a campaign expense.)

I also wanted to provide an advance head’s up regarding our application deadline for the Emerge Oregon Class of 2021. Our deadline is Friday, October 16. Between now and then, I’m happy to speak with any Democratic woman you think should learn more about our program.

If there is someone you think should apply right now, they can do so today!
Have them start here, on our application process information page:
