We Believe

We believe that all people–whether they have long lived here or recently arrived–should be treated with fairness and justice. We must provide genuine opportunity for all–through excellent public education, access to public and private institutions on fair terms, and diverse, healthy neighborhoods. We believe that our connections, our research, our persuasive power, and our claims to justice improve society. We believe we can change our communities, our companies, our country and the world for the better.

Appleseed’s Model of Advocacy

Through engagement with our pro bono partners to conduct research and recommend practical solutions, our advocacy addresses those who have the power to ensure the following

— government advances the public interest,
— corporations treat consumers fairly and
— all can exercise rights and enjoy real opportunities.

Appleseed and our network of Centers identify barriers to opportunities and justice.

We are an effective, evidence-based advocacy organization whose victories secure lasting access to opportunity and justice for all.

We tackle tough problems, fill important gaps, and are reliable and accurate. We present the case for important changes and translate idealism into pragmatic solutions.

We provide meaningful, skills-based ways to get involved. We ask for a thicker form of civic engagement than donating occasionally or signing a letter that may never be delivered.
