You’re here to be light, bringing out the God colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Matthew 5:14 - 16a (THE MESSAGE)

Star Parker, one of few national black conservative leaders, is founder and president of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education (CURE), a public policy institute in Washington, D.C. that promotes market-based solutions to fight poverty and transition America’s poor from government dependency.
Before her involvement in social activism, Star experienced seven years in the grip of welfare dependency. After a Christian conversion, she changed her life. Today, CURE leads a network of 800 pastors serving in at-risk communities across the country, and hosts BlackCommunityNews.com. In 2017, she joined the White House Opportunity Initiative task force to share ideas on how to best fix our nation’s most distressed zip codes. This year, Star was appointed to the U.S. Frederick Douglass Bicentennial Commission. On Friday, November 2, Star will speak to how abortion has deeply hurt our society, and what we can do about it.

The MOMs program helped me learn a lot about myself. For example, I was holding onto past mistakes instead of learning from them and moving forward. However, I learned that I am a good mom and a good person. MOMs helped me grow as a woman. I don’t feel unworthy anymore. I feel appreciated and loved. I learned about SIDS, discipline, and techniques that will help me to better raise my children. I am now happy about my choice to keep this baby and I know that I am doing the right thing despite what others may think.
