Do you own your home, or does government?
SFE and the MSU Young Americans for Liberty are proud to bring Suzette Kelo to Michigan State University to tell her story of government abuse and what she's doing about it.
Suzette is the owner of the now famous little pink house that the city of New London, Connecticut took from her so they could move forward on their "development plans" on the property. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that taking private property from one person and giving it to another was OK, as long as government was doing it for the "public good" - in this case to get higher tax revenues from a larger development.
The Kelo decision sparked a national outrage as groups from the Institute for Justice to the NAACP opposed it. Citizens in many states pushed efforts to limit such government abuse, but the fight continues...
Suzette will be sharing her experiences and her new book will be available for sale and signing.
The event is free and open to all, so come support the most fundamental human rights - property rights.
