Dear Visitors,

The Romero Institute, the successor of the Christic Institute, is a nonprofit law and public policy center that combines investigation with high-impact litigation, public education and grassroots organizing. Based in Santa Cruz, California, the Institute engages in nationwide legal consulting, litigation, and public education. The Institute is headed by Daniel Sheehan and Sara Nelson. Since 2005, the Institute's main focus has been the Lakota People’s Law Project, which seeks to prevent the illegal seizure of Native American Lakota children from their families and tribes in violation of the Indian Child Welfare Act.
