Emerge America is a DC based nonprofit working to train Democratic women to run for office across the country. On June 17, Rock Hill Rising will co-sponsor an Emerge South Carolina info session at Clinton College in Rock Hill from 9AM-11AM. Only 14.7% of the legislators in South Carolina are women! National numbers aren’t much better. However, there is hope! Of the Emerge alumnae who ran for office in 2016, 70% won their races. That’s compelling data. So, come out to learn more! You don’t have to be a woman and you don’t have to want to run for office. This movement is about diversifying representation and giving average citizens the information and training to lead in their communities. You can RSVP on Facebook using this link: Emerge South Carolina Info Session in Rock Hill.
