Emerge Louisiana’s 2019 Spring Internship Program
Emerge Louisiana recruits, trains and provides a powerful network for Democratic women interested in running for office. Emerge Louisiana is the only in-depth, six-month training program that inspires Democratic women to run, giving them the tools to win in Louisiana.
