Last Day to Join the Susette Kelo Liberty Club
Three years ago, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that my little pink cottage in New London, Connecticut, could be handed over to a private developer.
It was just one of 10,000 instances of eminent domain abuse to occur in the United States over a 5-year period.
Just one instance—yet a tipping point that sparked a national revolution.
On this, the third anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s dreadful decision, I’m asking for 10,000 people to join me in donating to the non-profit legal foundation that stood by me all the way to the Supreme Court, and continues to stand by heroic individuals fighting to keep the homes that are rightfully theirs.
Eminent domain abuse continues coast-to-coast! Despite tremendous gains in state courts and state legislatures since the Supreme Court’s ruling, eminent domain abuse is still rampant. Click on the links below to read more.
Fund the Fight Against Eminent Domain Abuse
By donating to the Institute for Justice on the anniversary of the ruling—June 23, 2008—you will become a Founding Member of the Susette Kelo Liberty Club.
Every single dollar raised during this special event will be used to fight eminent domain abuse across the nation.
And while all donations are appreciated, I hope you’ll consider giving your most generous gift of $25, $50, $100, or more. Even a $5 contribution will send a message to those in power that our homes are important to us and must be protected.
With your help, the Institute for Justice will continue to keep tax-hungry politicians and land-hungry developers from taking our private property.
Donate today and enlist your family and friends, also.
Yours in Freedom,
