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.  In October 2014, we achieved a major milestone with two South Dakota tribes getting two year foster care planning grants.

In response to constitutional violations of the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act, the Romero Institute is working to create a Constitution Protection Zone in Santa Cruz.  This would require all Santa Cruz City and County law enforcement officers to actively stop outside agencies from enforcing the unconstitutional sections of the act.

The World Future Institute, or Worldview Project, has been an interest of Romero Chief Counsel Daniel Sheehan throughout his career.  We are now developing a web site to extrapolate and work through the ideas and conclusions of the project, with the goal of having a physical institute in the near future.
