Like a lot of fellow Democrats, Victoria would sit around scratching her head wondering what this world was coming to. The fake news, the lies, the party before the people mentality made her ashamed. This was not the Democracy that makes her a proud American. If she stood by and did nothing, she would not be able to live with herself. She is the kind of person that when there is a crisis, she runs toward it while most people run away. She felt she needed to do something about this assault on our Democracy. In conversations with the Democratic Woman’s Club members, she was encouraged to run for office. She knew she wasn’t a politician, but needed to step up.
The Emerge Program provided training, knowledge, and support, to run an effective campaign. She was able to network with women from all walks of life looking to make a difference. She says, sometimes she would look around the room and be amazed by the talent and energy her classmates possessed. She says, she’s so proud of her class and all the women running. Hopefully, we can return to our Democracy a government “of the People, by the People, and for the People”.
