Curtis T. Hill, Jr. Named CURE Senior Fellow
For immediate release: March 3, 2022
[Washington, D.C.] – Former Indiana AG Curtis T. Hill Aims to Found Charter City as CURE Senior Fellow.
Former Indiana AG Curtis T. Hill, Jr. has a new role in the nation’s capital: Senior Fellow at CURE, the Center for Urban Renewal and Education, a think tank addressing poverty and racial inequality through free-market policy solutions. CURE’s Fellowship Program is an opportunity for innovative thinkers and doers to add their talent and experience to CURE’s promotion of constitutional and free-market ideas that can drive real change in our distressed communities.
Mr. Hill is a graduate of both the Indiana University School of Business and the Indiana University School of Law. A lawyer and the first African American to serve as Attorney General of Indiana (2017-2021). He is a notable conservative voice and commentator on criminal justice, race, education, COVID restrictions, and personal liberties. “As one of the nation’s leading black voices, Curtis Hill is an exciting addition to our team. As an attorney general, he saw firsthand the damage that government dependence causes to black communities,” says Star Parker, Founder and President of CURE.
The partnership between Hill and CURE will yield research and the potential establishment of a charter city, or a similarly named independent political unit, aimed at better serving its citizens via a foundational document. Mr. Hill, a proponent of charter cities, is optimistic as to their potential impact, “Through this exciting collaboration, we will explore innovative municipal governance models that encourage private investment in our urban centers. We aim to identify strategies for restoring economic vitality to distressed communities that have suffered through extended failed policies and bureaucratic inaction.” Other proponents say charter cities can better steer their local politics without state or federal intervention. Policymakers will use this model to help build freedom and opportunity free from federal government dependence in our nation’s most distressed communities.
Mr. Hill is a welcome addition to CURE’s team, which serves distressed communities with free-market solutions to poverty. Among CURE’s other mission-critical projects are its clergy outreach programs, its weekly television show, CURE America with Star Parker, and its policy center geared toward federal lawmakers.
