Twitter Town Hall with Emerge America

Emerge America will host a #EmergeNow Twitter Town Hall to highlight the Emerge Virginia alumnae running for the House of Delegates in 2017 on Thursday, October 19th from 1-2 PM EST.  Emerge America is the premier training program for Democratic women. They inspire women to run, and hone their skills to win. The goal is clear: to increase the number of Democratic women in public office.

Kelly is an Emerge Alumni and will be one of the featured panelists. Increasing the number of women running and winning is critical if we want government to reflect the communities they represent. This town hall will also serve as a reminder for women to vote.
