Conservative activist Star Parker will be coming to the University of Cincinnati.

This semester, students at the University of Cincinnati and those in the surrounding community will have the chance to hear from one of the most influential black conservative leaders in the nation: Star Parker. Parker has been invited to speak at UC by Young Americans for Freedom, a new conservative activist organization on campus.

After having been dependent on welfare for seven years and enduring four abortions, Parker’s first-hand experiences provide an authentic and unique perspective to an array of contentious social issues. After her conversion to Christianity, Star left her old life behind. She has since become a conservative social activist, advocating for pro-life policies (see her recent testimony on Capitol Hill) and solutions to help America’s poor escape government dependency. Today, Parker is the founder and president of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education, an influential public policy organization located in Washington, D.C. that lobbies for market-based fixes to poverty and welfare dependence.

She has brought her message to nearly 200 college campuses nationwide and, with the help of Young America’s Foundation, will be making UC one of her stops!

Her speech, titled “Race’s Connection to Abortion and Welfare: A Conservative Take,” will take place on Thursday, February 15, 2018 at 7:00 pm in the Richard E. Lindner Center Auditorium on UC’s campus. Everyone is welcome and the event is free for all attendees!

To gauge the amount of interest in the event, those interested are asked to register on Eventbrite. Entry will be granted on a first-come, first-serve basis.
