Tis true, Star Parkers views "are easily discovered on-line," Just google and up comes Star Parker CURE FIGHTING POVERTY / RESTORING DIGINITY. STAR is the founder and president of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education (CURE), a Washington D.C. based public policy institute that promotes market-based solutions to fight poverty. 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. In 1996, she was a featured speaker at the 1996 Republican National Convention.

Today, CURE leads a network of 800 pastors serving in at-risk communities across the country; and hosts BlackCommunityNews.com, a leading internet news network that has provided conservative information to more than two million viewers since 2015. Before involvement in social activism, she had seven years of first-hand experience in the grip of welfare dependency. After a Christian conversion, she changed her life. Now, Star regularly consults with both federal and state legislators on market-based strategies to fight poverty.

In 2017, Star joined the White House Opportunity Initiative task force to share ideas on how to best fix our nations most distressed zip codes.
