DC Appleseed Board

The DC Appleseed Center for Law and Justice is governed by a Board led by an eight-member executive committee. Our Board members do a lot more than handle the organization’s governance. They also serve on our project teams and often become involved in outreach, advocacy, and other efforts. Another important part of Appleseed is our Advisory Council that includes former Board members and other community leaders.
