In America today there are over 450 property rights organizations, and tens of thousands of citizens that are being forced to defend their property rights against manipulative local and state governments and Federal land regulatory agencies.

This is a fantastic opportunity to join forces, network, share ideas, listen to the experts and learn the latest in a wide range of strategies and related issues. This conference is designed to help others fight their own battles in their own backyards, and to win!
