Star Parker, founder and president of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education (CURE), recently spoke at the Western Conservative Summit in Denver, Colorado, about how government dependency destroys the American dream.
CURE addresses poverty from a Christian and conservative perspective. Star spoke of her organization’s pastors network, why CURE is located in the nation’s capital, American exceptionalism, the lies of the left, and more. Her life story includes welfare, criminal activity, and abortions, but Star became saved. Once she became a Christian, she escaped the welfare cycle.
Star’s personal testimony and her organization’s mission are inspirational. The answers to poverty? Faith, freedom, and personal responsibility, not a welfare state.
