Emerge, an organization that recruits and trains Democratic women to run for office, launched “In Women We Trust” — a campaign highlighting how Democratic women are entrusted to run and win in the most competitive races up and down the ballot and across the nation.
“This year’s election shows that ‘In Women We Trust’ is more than just a slogan, it’s a fact that is resonating with millions of voters across the country,” said Stephannie Lane Baker, executive director of Emerge Arkansas, in a press release.
Among the program’s alumni are North Little Rock’s Allison Grigsby Sweatman, who is running for State Senate District 13 and against incumbent State Sen. Jane English.
“The Emerge training gave me the tools I needed to run a strong campaign in the most competitive legislative race in Arkansas,” she said. “We are working hard to flip this seat so I can advocate for children and families in the State Senate.”
Since the program launched in 2019, it has trained over 50 women to run for office and some notable alumni include state representatives Denise Ennett, Denise Garner and Ashley Hudson.
