Discussion on Private Property

And Public Policy Possibilities To Address Them

Picture of houseWhat does it mean to own property if the government can regulate what you can and cannot do with it — or even take it away from you?

If property is what we own and control, then 

  • What is another person’s relationship to your property?
  • What is the community’s relationship to your property?
  • What is your relationship to other people’s property?
  • And what is your relationship to the community’s property?

Do we own property in our own bodies? And if so, should we be allowed to use our bodies in way we see fit?

Join us on Saturday, Feb. 9 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the conference room on the lower level as we explore your concerns about private property and the different public policy possibilities for addressing them.

The discussions will be guided by your concerns and the Interactivity Foundation’s Property report. No preparation is necessary, but bring your questions and concerns for us to explore!
