Black Leaders Speak Out on Gun Control
Washington, DC – Star Parker, founder and president of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education (CURE), and a group of prominent figures from the black community will hold a news conference at 9:45A.M. on February 22nd at the National Press Club to speak out on the issue of gun control. Ms. Parker and other noted thought leaders, authors and speakers will make the case that the gun control laws currently being proposed are misguided because there is no evidence that these policies will prevent gun violence and other tragedies from happening again. CURE will lead voices from the black community in calling for a serious national dialogue on this central issue and “last civil right.”
