Star Parker is founder and president of CURE, the Center for Urban Renewal and Education (CURE), a non-profit Policy Institute based in Washington DC that fights poverty to restore dignity through messages of faith, freedom, and personal responsibility. The vision of CURE is to preserve, promote, and protect Christianity, capitalism, and our constitution to improve culture, reduce government dependency, and to build race relations. CURE works in public policy, the public square, and in poor communities through communicating its principles directly to policy leaders in Washington, through the media and through its clergy program of more than 500 pastors nationwide, many in distressed zip codes. Star is a nationally syndicated columnist and hosts a weekly television news show, CURE America, that is broadcast on the National Religious Broadcasters Network, the TCT Network and streaming services. Guests include Members of Congress, Administration officials and public opinion leaders in Washington D.C. and around the country for in-depth policy discussions on news of the day. Star has received numerous awards, serves on the Board of directors for the National Religious Broadcasters and the Leadership Institute. She has spoken at more than 225 college campuses and brings her message to the American people as a regular commentator of FOX News, BBC, NPR, and other outlets.
