“Community is an environment where you can find a home in each other’s heart and soul. It is a living entity with spirit as its anchor, where a group of people are empowered by one another, by spirit, and by the ancestors to be themselves, carry out their purpose, and use their power responsibly.” Sobonfu Some

Please join us in celebration of the 10-Year Anniversary of Emerge Kentucky!
Founded in 2009 by Board Chair Jennifer A. Moore, Emerge Kentucky has trained nearly 200 women how to run for political office and win.
For the 2018 Midterm Election, 27 Emerge Kentucky alumnae won their elections from state house to the judiciary to city council to school board. In fact, the number of Emerge Kentucky alumnae in the state house increased from two to seven. Kentucky now has an all-time record of the number of women serving in the state legislature.
Let’s celebrate the collective progress made by Emerge women, and the change we aspire to make – all across the Commonwealth.
