The Romero Institute &
New Paradigm Project
The Romero Institute, a renowned 501(C)(3) tax-exempt public interest law and public policy organization based in California, has built an impressive record of accomplishments over its 20-year history. Its extensive work is rooted in social justice, environmental sustainability, and public policy, grounded in a commitment to making a significant societal impact.
One of the Institute’s key achievements was the drafting and implementation of new enforcement rules for the Indian Child Welfare Act during the Obama Administration. This significant milestone helped to protect and promote the rights of indigenous children and families.
In a remarkable show of legal prowess, the Romero Institute successfully defended Lakota leader Chase Iron Eyes against charges brought by the Tiger/Swan Private Military Corporation and Dakota Access Oil Pipeline Corporation, a case that was not just a victory for Iron Eyes, but a stand for indigenous rights.
The Institute has also been instrumental in driving environmental policy changes, such as the creation and passing of the California State Senate Bill 1230. This groundbreaking legislation aimed to make electric vehicles more accessible and affordable for lower and middle-income families in California, thus promoting cleaner, sustainable transportation method
Strengthening its drive towards transformative impact, the Romero Institute has inaugurated the New Paradigm Institute. This pioneering subsidiary embarks on an explorative journey rooted in the recognition that our comprehension of the universe remains nascent. It posits that beyond our terrestrial sphere, there may exist other entities with a deeper, more profound understanding of existence. The New Paradigm Institute seeks to decipher these expansive dimensions of consciousness, thereby catalyzing a broader appreciation for the interconnectedness of all life forms.
This appreciation extends to all life, human and non-human alike, emphasizing that every form of life possesses intrinsic value. Integral to the mission of the New Paradigm Institute is the championing of environmental preservation. It acknowledges the symbiotic relationship humanity has with the environment and underscores the critical necessity of preserving it for our survival and for the sustainable development of our planet.
Leveraging its status as a 501(C)(3) tax-exempt non-profit organization, the Romero Institute, and its auxiliary New Paradigm Institute, make effective use of their resources to promote these foundational societal, environmental, and cosmic objectives. The tax-exempt status offers a platform for generating and channeling resources towards activities that elevate our collective consciousness, and promotes understanding and responsibility towards our shared universe.
The Institutes’ overarching mission transcends mere survival. It aims to guide humanity towards a more enlightened and accountable role within the cosmic community. The ultimate objective is not just the preservation of life as we know it, but the evolution of humanity into a more understanding, responsible and integrated participant within the larger tapestry of life and consciousness in the universe.
