Next Generation Board

The Chicago Appleseed Next Generation Board (“Next Gen”) is a dedicated community of emerging leaders who are committed to fighting for a fair and just legal system for all through systemic reform of the civil, criminal, immigration and family courts in Illinois. Next Gen supports Chicago Appleseed by fundraising, organizing educational events and through pro bono support, while developing the next generation of civic leaders and advocates in Chicago.


Next Generation Board members protect and promote the civil rights of Chicagoans by:


  • Hosting quarterly Community Conversations that engage the broader legal community and generate public knowledge on current events and issues;
  • Fundraising social and networking events that deepen relationships among advocates and support the organization’s mission; and
  • Pro bono involvement in Chicago Appleseed’s Criminal Justice, Access to Justice, Family Law or Immigration Advisory Committees to advance the organization’s mission and work.
