About us

Social Justice advocacy for people without children

New Legacy Institute (NLI) is a policy institute focused on the global culture and impact of pronatalism. The systemic realities of pronatalism permeate language, education, economies, ecology and the every day lives of people around the world.

The Institute is a social justice platform for people without children. NLI works with communities, institutions and organizations, which directly and indirectly contribute to the social, structural and systemic biases against those without children.

NLI honors all experiences, circumstances and choices around not having children, and the diversity within our community. For the sake of change, which impacts us collectively, NLI is an umbrella organization, which is inclusive of all who do not have children. We believe we can accomplish more together, through what ultimately connects us.

We know that research and data drive policy and social change. By working together, and in collaboration with professionals, organizations and institutions with shared values, we can begin to change the status quo narrative of the places we live, work and gather. 

We also believe that the change we are seeking will be far reaching and impactful beyond our community, as we focus on inclusive and universal workplace policies and public policy, which is truly equitable.
