Washington, D.C.—In 2017, Emerge America alumnae across the country have already stepped up to lead the resistance against Trump and take back our country—22 of the 27 Emerge America alumnae who have appeared on the ballot so far this year have won their races.

Washington, D.C.—On Tuesday, Emerge America alumnae resisted, persisted and enlisted in races in Wisconsin and Colorado, where 15 of the 17 Emerge women on the ballot won 

“This is what resistance looks like,” said Andrea Steele, Founder and President of Emerge America. “Hillary Clinton inspired these women to join the political process; Donald Trump’s antics and actions spurred them to take action; and Emerge trained and enabled them to win. These winning women are proof of how we can take back our country.”

San Francisco, Calif.—Today, Emerge America, the nation’s leading organization that recruits and trains Democratic women to run for office held their annual Ambition to Action Conference and Awards Ceremony at the Julia Morgan Ballroom in the Merchants Exchange Building in San Francisco. The event took stock of the landscape for women in politics after Hillary Clinton’s historic loss in the November election and strategized about the work left to do in 2018 and 2020 to move closer to gender parity in our governing bodies.

Despite Hillary Clinton's historic upset at the top of the ticket, voters across the country elected almost 150 Emerge women in down ballot races. Her loss should not be seen as a sign that the American public is not willing to vote for women. Emerge candidates won in red states and blue states showing that when Democratic women run, they win at similar rates to their male counterparts.
