Appleseed focuses on broad systemic social initiatives rather than on the traditional provision of legal services to individuals. This vision grew out of the idea that the best way to achieve big results is to work for the kind of change that levels the playing field and transforms entire communities at a time. Massachusetts Appleseed identifies and addresses issues particular to our  community at large and then connects with private practice lawyers, corporate counsel, law schools, civic leaders, and other professionals to tackle these difficult social problems at their root causes.
