Boot Camps

Boot camps are specifically for women running in a current election cycle - next one will be in April 2024!

Emerge Arkansas boot camps are designed specifically for Democratic women and non-binary folks running in the current election cycle.

The boot camps have been developed by Emerge and our affiliates to give Democratic women the skills they need to refine and turbocharge their campaigns. Top political strategists and trainers will teach attendees critical elements of campaigning, including:

Campaign Overview & Structure

Centering Equity and Justice

Developing Campaign Plan & Strategy

Messaging and Media Relations

Social Media

Endorsements & Power Brokers


Field Campaigns

Public Speaking

And much more!

Attendees who complete the boot camp will be considered Emerge Arkansas alumnae and have access to alumnae resources, as well as continuing education opportunities.

Candidate boot camps occur in election years, and the next one will be in April 2024. If you have questions, please email
