Here is more about Star Parker:
Star Parker is the founder and president of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education, a Washington D.C. based Public Policy Institute that fights poverty and restores dignity through messages of faith, freedom and personal responsibility.
Star consulted on federal Welfare Reform in the mid-90s and then founded CURE to bring new ideas to policy discussions on how to transition America’s poor from government dependency.
Today, Star regularly consults with both federal and state legislators on market-based strategies to fight poverty.
Her organization CURE has three programs:
— A Policy Program that works directly with the White House and the Congress on Welfare Policy ideas;
— A Media Program that includes rapid response and the daily news blog, blackcommunitynews.com;
— And a Clergy Program that umbrellas a national network of more than 850 clergy who serve in various hard-hit zip codes around the country.
In 2017, Star joined the White House Opportunity Initiative advisory team to share ideas on how to best fix our nation’s most distressed zip codes.
In 2016, CPAC honored her with the “Ronald Reagan Foot Soldier of the Year”.
She has authored several books; is a regular commentator on national television and radio networks including the BBC, EWTN, and FOX News; and is a nationally syndicated columnist with Creators, which carries in some of the largest newspapers and news websites in the country, reaching 7 million readers weekly.
