Protecting the status quo from competition is not in anyone's interest - certainly not the interests of low-income and underrepresented Americans who want to get ahead through entrepreneurship. We need legislators and leaders who will stand up for free enterprise and small business, not create laws that discourage innovation and opportunity. Join us as Star Parker discusses how our country needs more entrepreneurs, not more bureaucrats.
Star Parker is the Founder and President of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education (CURE). Prior to Star Parker’s involvement in public policy, she lived seven years in the grip of government dependency. Her experiences on welfare led her to play an active role in the passing of federal welfare reform in 1996.
From welfare mother to businesswoman, national celebrity, and international author, Star Parker exemplifies hard work, aspiration, and individual responsibility. CURE serves to lead others to follow her example and bring new energy to policy discussions in Washington.
Star Parker's talk is part of the John H. Schnatter Center for Free Enterprise Spring Speaker Series on Entrepreneuship. Her talk is free and open to the public. Free pizza for attendees.
