"I support and encourage Emerge Maine in its important work. The training and inspiration that Emerge Maine provides 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 is the most effective candidate recruitment and training program Maine has ever known. On a shoestring budget, Emerge has recruited, trained and inspired over 100 Maine women. All donations go directly to recruiting and training the next crop of Democratic women leaders - women who will run for town councils, school boards, the state legislature and beyond!
