The Good Apple Award is presented to one member of the Massachusetts legal or business community who exemplifies Massachusetts Appleseed’s commitment to public service, fairness, and social justice. Yasmin has been a civic leader throughout her career and is a mentor to others, a pro bono champion, and a steadfast advocate of diversity and inclusion.

The centers work both collectively and independently to build a society in which opportunities are genuine, access to the law is universal and equal, and government advances the public interest.
