For immediate release: September 29, 2021
3-day event equips clergy to change laws and change lives
Washington, D.C. – Packed with powerful speakers on subjects like educational freedom, homelessness, police reform, family structure, and protecting life, the Center for Urban Renewal & Education (CURE) wrapped up its annual National Policy Summit today in Washington, D.C.
Former Attorney General William Barr, Former Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, Congressman Byron Donalds, former NFL star Jack Brewer, and former Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill were among the speakers that walked attendees through the policy challenges in Washington and provided important information and ideas for action to impact their churches and their communities.
“We are honored by the amazing speakers who came to address our pastors,” said Star Parker, Founder and President of CURE. “Despite the challenging policies of the Biden Administration that is intent on making more Americans dependent on government, these pastors know that government is not God and has far exceeded its power over our daily lives. We want more personal freedom, an ability to live out our faith and make our views heard in the public square.”
Black pastors from all over the country attended the 3-day event to learn, collaborate and fellowship. CURE has more than 500 pastors affiliated with its Clergy Center and provides training and information to help them impact their communities on national policy issues.
The theme of the conference was “The State of Black America,” based on a report commissioned by CURE in conjunction with the Claremont Institute. After a year of racial tensions and a national dialogue on the ills in American history and society, the report explores the latest scholarship into the character, shape, and tendencies of life for black Americans, honestly addressing the nation’s long-troubled racial issues even as it bears witness to the promise the American heritage contains for blacks.
CURE is a policy and research center dedicated to fighting poverty and restoring dignity through messages of faith, freedom and personal responsibility. CURE seeks free-market solutions to provide education, employment, healthcare and the opportunity for black families to grow and their communities to flourish.
