One of Emerge NJ’s Alumni, Kristen Zadroga-Hart said, “Navigating the world of politics can seem like an uphill climb, especially for women. Being a part of the Emerge New Jersey program has not only provided me with the skills needed to run a successful campaign. Emerge is training the next generation of Democratic women leaders and I am so proud to be a part of the program. Without Emerge, my run for New Jersey State Assembly would not have been possible.” 



Emerge New Jersey is changing the face of New Jersey politics by identifying, training and encouraging women to run for office, get elected and to seek higher office. Our intensive, cohort-based six-month training program is unique. As the number of elected Democratic women remains flat or even declines, the need for our important work is growing. The organization is at the heart of a powerful movement led by women that is sweeping the country.
