Want to become actively involved in public office, but feel inadequately prepared to make that leap?

Enter Emerge Washington, stage left!

Emerge Washington wants to train and support Democratic women to become qualified and effective public office candidates. The mission of the organization includes increasing "the number of Democratic women leaders from diverse backgrounds in public office through recruitment, training and providing a powerful network."

The group is hosting an information session in Yakima on Tuesday, September 18, 2018 at Norm's of Yakima restaurant (5 E Yakima Ave). Light appetizers and a no-host lunch will be provided.

According to their Facebook page, about seventy-percent of their trainees went on to win public offices. To RSVP and get more info, contact Executive Director, Karen Besserman, featured speaker, at karen@emergewa.org.
