Property rights are the foundation of liberty. The right to own, enjoy, and put property to productive use is a source of personal security, dignity, and prosperity, protecting the freedom of individuals to shape their destiny.

Unfortunately, the government often tramples on individuals’ property rights by taking it without compensation and by unreasonable regulation or intrusion.

Since our founding in 1973, Pacific Legal Foundation has protected property rights as a top priority. In case after case—including 15 victories before the Supreme Court—PLF fights for Americans whose property rights have been violated by the government.

We aim to achieve the same level of constitutional protection for individual rights in property as the courts accord other celebrated personal liberties.
