Cornerstone of Liberty: the state of private property rights in America today

In coordination with the New Mexico Lawyers Chapter of the Federalist Society and Chapter President Emil J. Kiehne, the Rio Grande Foundation is proud to host Christina Sandefur of the Goldwater Institute as our latest guest speaker for the Rio Grande Foundation’s Speaker Series.

Christina Sandefur is Executive Vice President at the Goldwater Institute. She also develops policies and litigates cases advancing healthcare freedom, free enterprise, private property rights, free speech, and taxpayer rights. Christina has won important victories for property rights in Arizona and works nationally to promote the Institute’s Private Property Rights Protection Act, a state-level reform that requires government to pay owners when regulations destroy property rights and reduce property values. She is also a co-drafter of the 41-state Right to Try initiative, now federal law, which protects terminally ill patients’ right to try safe investigational treatments that have been prescribed by their physician but are not yet FDA approved for market.

Christina is the co-author of the book Cornerstone of Liberty: Private Property Rights in 21st Century America (2016). She is a frequent guest on national television and radio programs, has provided expert legal testimony to various legislative committees, and is a frequent speaker at conferences. She is the recipient of the 2018 Buckley Award in recognition of her leadership in the freedom movement. Christina is a graduate of Michigan State University College of Law and Hillsdale College.

Join the Rio Grande Foundation, the New Mexico Lawyers Chapter of the Federalist Society, and the Goldwater Institute of Arizona for Christina Sandefur’s discussion: “Cornerstone of Liberty: the state of private property rights in America today.”

The event is free, although we kindly request an RSVP. Light snacks will be provided.
