Star Parker is one of the names on the short list mentioned when
anyone speaks of national black conservative leaders.
Star Parker is the founder and president of The Center for Urban
Renewal and Education, a public policy think tank that promotes
market-based solutions to fight poverty.
Before involvement in social activism, Star had seven years of
first-hand experience in the grip of welfare dependency. After
consulting on federal Welfare Reform in the mid-90s, she founded
UrbanCure to bring new ideas to policy discussions on how to
transition America's poor from government dependency.
Star has a bachelor's degree in Marketing and International
Business from Woodbury University and has received numerous awards
and commendations for her work on public policy issues.
She regularly consults with both federal and state legislators
on market- based strategies to fight poverty; she has spoken on
more than 190 colleges and universities about anti-poverty
initiatives; has authored several books; and is a nationally
syndicated columnist with Morris Communication Group.
Many of national acclaim would agree that Star Parker has
established herself as a thoughtful and energetic leader in
Washington D.C and her UrbanCure advisory board includes folks of
note such as Generals John Ashcroft and Ed Meese; Doctors Ben
Carson, Robert P. George, George Gilder, Marvin Olasky and Walter
