APPEAL is a coalition of American landowners, businesses, leaders, community organizations, and issue groups who believe that a person’s right to be secure in his property is foundational to all other rights. We believe that land should never be taken without an owner’s consent and given to another person or company for their own commercial or private use.

We actively support the development of energy resources and energy infrastructure while rejecting companies’ use of eminent domain to confiscate land from individuals for the construction of mass transmission lines that do not provide local service or community benefit.

We support construction of mass-transmission energy infrastructure using solutions that rely on free-market principles and give landowners negotiating power. These offer a fair alternative to eminent domain that maximizes benefits for all parties involved and creates willing partnerships between landowners and utilities rather than relying on the coercive transfer of rights away from landowners.
