Students are given a high degree of responsibility and Appleseed staff rely heavily on the students’ work to develop new projects. Possible examples of projects include researching: (1) solutions for Hawai?i’s affordable housing crisis, (2) inequities in Hawai?i’s tax system, (3) language accessibility of the Hawai?i drivers examination, and (4) issues in Hawai?i’s foster care system. The first two projects were developed into policy briefs and ultimately resulted in successful legislation. The third and fourth projects resulted in two successful class action cases.
