Advisory Council

Meet Emerge Louisiana's Advisory Council

The Emerge Louisiana Advisory Council is comprised of a diverse group of women and men from across the state, who share a common interest in electing more Democratic women to office. While the Emerge Louisiana’s Board of Directors will be tasked with more of the organization’s daily operations, the Advisory Board will focus on Emerge Louisiana’s annual strategic recruitment and fundraising. Each Advisory Board member has agreed to give or raise a minimum of $1,000 per year to support our efforts.
