Organization Profile

For more than five decades, the Romero Institute (formerly the Christic Institute) has combined public education, grassroots organizing, and highly-effective litigation to expose sources of injustice and promote life-sustaining solutions.

Our mission is to advocate for the poor and oppressed by defending their rights through public education, grassroots organizing, leadership development, research, investigation, litigation, and public policy formulation.

We are home to programs that make a difference in the world: Lakota People's Law Project, partnering with the Lakota to safeguard sovereignty, protect children, and return the sacred and Let's Green California, a climate justice movement with the goal of creating a carbon-neutral California.
