Breaking the Cycle of Poverty
This was an event of the Conservative Women’s Network, a monthly luncheon meeting hosted at The Heritage Foundation with the Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute.
Star Parker talked about “Breaking the Cycle of Poverty: From Entitlement to Empowerment.” A one-time single mother who was on welfare talked about how other black women could get out of poverty also. She talked about what is wrong with welfare programs, describing the “war on poverty” as a war by liberals on family, thought, tradition, and religion. Ms. Parker responded to questions from members of the audience.
