You are invited to the George home for a chance to meet two great women and learn more about the Emerge Vermont Women Leaders for a Democratic Future Training Program.
Sarah Mcall is the Executive Director of Emerge Vermont. Sarah will talk about why it is so important to encourage women to run for office and how the Emerge VT training program inspires women to run. If you have ever thought about running for office or have considered working on someone's campaign, this will be a talk you want to hear.
Dawn Ellis is a graduate of Emerge Vermont's inaugural Class of 2014 and is a candidate in the Vermont State Senate race to represent the Chittenden District. She will talk about her experience in the program and why she is running for office.
