Challenging injustice. Changing the world.

The Romero Institute is an interfaith team of attorneys, organizers, and researchers.

We are committed to working on social justice causes where the need is dire and the potential for strategic solutions is real. Our work dates back to 1977, when we took on our first environmental cause—and won.
