Appleseed Centers all over the US and Mexico are working hard – and receiving excellent press coverage for their work.
Last month, we featured the work of Missouri Appleseed and this month we are proud to share that Massachusetts Appleseed's own Deborah Silva was quoted in the most recent issue of the ABA Journal. Silva was interviewed for an article discussing court bans on electronic devices: “‘It's a real barrier to access to justice. The burden of this policy really falls to those who can't afford to hire an attorney.’"

Seeds of Learning Series
Please join us on April 10, 2019 for an open conversation on how to most effectively deploy research to advance state and local policy change with Kriston McIntosh and Jay Shambaugh of the Brookings Institution’s Hamilton Project. The Hamilton Project produces evidence-based policy proposals and analyses to promote broad economic growth that benefits more Americans. The conversation will be moderated by Nebraska Appleseed Executive Director Becky Gould and we will be joined by Board members and Center staff from around the Appleseed Network.
As you may remember, in our September 2018 Newsletter we spotlighted the work of Missouri Appleseed, the newest Center in the Appleseed Network, launched in November 2017. In this short time, the Center has contributed greatly to criminal justice reform in the state of Missouri and has been cited twice in the last couple of weeks by the St.Louis Post-Dispatch (see below).
We are very excited to share the work with you. As always, thanks for the support!
Missouri Appleseed is currently engaged in three projects working with professors and students from three different schools within St. Louis University.
Welcome to the latest edition of Appleseed’s newsletter!

Appleseed has focused on access to justice for 25 years. Protecting judicial integrity, improving the operation and structure of courts, and offering resources to pro se litigants are at the forefront of Appleseed’s work to promote justice. This work is not finished. Join us to learn about the latest developments and discuss new justice initiatives we can support.
On 12/5/18, Princeton AlumniCorps and Appleseed hosted a webinar presentation and Q & A on the topic of “Care for the Caregivers” of undocumented and displaced people. This webinar was the 3rd in a series as part of a partnership between Princeton AlumniCorps and Appleseed, funded by the Hewlett Foundation, which aims to promote network-based collaboration on issues facing immigrants and refugees.
Appleseed is a Network of 18 public interest justice Centers in the United States and Mexico. The Network focuses on a variety of social, economic, and legal justice issues, bringing a non-partisan evidence-based approach to evaluating problems. Appleseed, working with stakeholders across the spectrum, uses its findings to propose and advocate practical, achievable solutions.
