About Us

Georgia Appleseed advances justice and equity for all Georgia’s children, with a particular focus on Black and Brown children, children experiencing poverty, LGBTQ+ children, children with disabilities, and children in foster care. Justice requires that every child has access to strong, nurturing schools and a healthy home.

Our mission is to increase justice in Georgia through law and policy reform and community engagement.

Our values include nonpartisan engagement, collaborations to achieve justice, listening to those who are most impacted, balanced and objective research, data-driven, pragmatic solutions, courage to tackle the hard issues, and the power of pro bono.

How We Work

At the heart of our work is a drive to bring people together to listen and learn from each other, so that we can move toward just, systemic solutions that make a better future for the children of our state.

Our tactics include research projects that leverage thousands of pro bono attorney hours to tackle complex issues, the development of self-advocacy tools for parents and caregivers, supporting local and state leaders' efforts to adopt meaningful policy changes, legislative advocacy, bipartisan coalition building, and sometimes just a conversation, where we have the opportunity to listen to a child’s experience firsthand.
