Star Parker

After Star’s first-hand experience in the grip of welfare dependency, a Christian conversion changed her life. She started a business in Los Angeles and began her activism. She began consulting with federal and state legislators on market-based strategies to fight poverty, including federal welfare reforms that passed in the mid-90s. She founded CURE in 1995 to bring new ideas to policy discussions on how to transition America’s poor from government dependency to self-sufficiency.
