Working to heal distressed communities.

Community-building is hard work. We start with policies that give people freedom to flourish.

New Release

A book that disrupts the narrative of dependency and victimization in the race debate.

The State of Black America is an incisive collection of essays that reveal the past, present, and future strength of black America as the best hope for a nation that has lost faith in itself.


Housing is a basic human necessity, but the federal government is ill-equipped to regulate it. We think that local governments should write housing policies that fit their own communities and that individuals should have optimal freedom to decide where and how they live.

  • The homelessness problem in some large American cities is continuing to grow even though it appears to be mitigating in other parts of the country and nationally. What can we do about it?

  • It was the right move by the Trump administration to eliminate this inappropriate assault on the most basic American freedom to choose where and how one wants to live.


Many children in urban communities are tied to failing school systems that provide little incentive for reform. School choice gives children the best opportunity to flourish and reduces the burden on taxpayers and low-income families alike.

  • This report finds that K-12 education in the United States is far from what it should or could be. As a nation we are underperforming by international standards.


We believe it is possible to insist on healthcare for all and a free healthcare market. A system of private insurance backstopped by public insurance maintains the quality and accessibility of healthcare while providing a safety net for the most vulnerable.

  • This report seeks to examine the issue of abortion in the hope that Congress and state legislatures investigate the physical, legal, cultural, and economic harm abortion has caused to our nation – including the Black community. We also urge Congress and the states to take the initiative to protect unborn children of all races to the maximum extent possible, especially as the courts release legislatures from outdated and erroneous legal precedents.


Over the last sixty years, progressive economic policies have done significant damage to poor urban communities. It’s time to find a better way. We embrace the principles of free enterprise and personal responsibility in order to lift up the most vulnerable in our society.

  • It is one of the unfortunate ironies coming out of the Biden administration that, with all the obsession about so-called equity, policies they are putting forth will only hurt the very low-income Americans they pretend to want to help.

  • Public policy should not be focused on inequality. Public policy should be focused on assuring conditions that allow every citizen to maximize their individual potential and ability to participate to the greatest extent possible in the economic growth and opportunity that is being created.

Race & Culture

The current fixation on race poisons our culture, foments division, and fails to offer real policy solutions to address the needs of our most distressed communities. We reject the language of racial division and work to reinforce a common culture united by our country’s founding principles of faith and freedom as the best hope for all Americans.

CURE’s new report, “Police and Communities: Bridging the Divide,” provides public officials and community leaders a roadmap for fixing problems in police departments as the nation remains divided over issues related to race and policing.
