2020 Annual Report

2020 was a truly historic year for Emgage and Muslim American voters. At the beginning of the year, we knew that the Muslim American community was poised to play a significant role electorally. After years of educating, organizing, and mobilizing, we felt that the community was on the cusp of something truly great. This is why we launched the Million Muslim Votes (MMV) campaign, a first-of-its-kind national effort to motivate and turn out at least one million voters in the 2020 general elections. Thanks to the creativity and dedication of our staff, volunteers, board members, and amazing partners, we turned out a historic number of voters and, with it, changed the narrative of Muslim political engagement.

2017 Annual Report

2017 was a watershed year for Emgage. Although founded almost ten years prior in Florida (formerly as Emerge USA), this year witnessed rapid growth in term of our size, budget, and program offerings.

2016 Annual Report

2016 was a critical year for Emgage and a year where as an organization we hit several first-time accomplishments. For the first time, Emgage ran a Get Out the Vote Campaign across five states for a general election and now has capacity in several battle ground states across the country.

2015 Annual Report

We made some changes to Emerge USA’s structure in 2015 to strengthen the position of our community at achieving our goal to develop a culture that sees voting as an outcome of consistent civic engagement instead of making voting the end goal.

2013 Annual Report

With an increase in voter turnout from approximately 40% in 2006 to over 90% in 2012 we accomplished one of our major goals when starting Emerge USA. We created a cultural shift in the attitude of our communities towards civic engagement. People were no longer asking "why should I vote?" but asked "who should I vote for?"
