Working to heal distressed communities.

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

Housing

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.

  • Homeless policy must be two-pronged. One, we need local law enforcement regimes that discourage rather than encourage homelessness. Two, we need social-welfare policies that get to the core of the problem.

  • 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.

Education

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.

Economics

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.

  • In light of the debate over police reform in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd, the Center for Urban Renewal and Education (CURE) released a report on a path forward on the bipartisan objectives of protecting people and helping communities feel secure. 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.
