FAMILY MATTERS.

Ronald and Latasha are passionate, bold, spirit-filled leaders that believe in Conservative Biblical principles. First and foremost, they believe parents have the ultimate responsibility to train up, direct their children’s lives, and diligently teach them according to Proverbs 22:6 and Deuteronomy 6.

 

In this, they believe that it’s incumbent on all individuals to hold in high regard their historical plight and the values that build strong parental guidance, encourage thriving communities, and teach children their true disposition.

Latasha and Ronald have been married for 17 years. Together they have four beautiful children, a homeschooled college graduate, and currently homeschooling their three children alongside other children from the community.

Together they have over 22 years of entrepreneurial experience.

Latasha has over 14 years of real estate experience, earning several certifications in Property Management and Non-profit Housing.

Latasha is the founder of Christian Home Educators Support System, Ky'Ijel Group Christian Academy, and EPIC Cafe (Empowering Parents Igniting Communities). In addition, she is the Illinois State Coordinator for ParentalRights.org, a 1776 Unites Achiever, 21st Ward Republican Committeewoman, Chaplain of Southside Republicans Organization, and a former candidate for Lieutenant Governor of Illinois. The recipient of the Illinois Family Institute 2021 "Voice of Truth" award, recognizing her "faithfulness and efforts to rescue students from the Apostles of Wokeism in government schools."

 

For over 15 years, Latasha has been an outspoken critic of the one-size-fits-all public school system, railing against its' propensity to usurp parental authority and to sexualize and indoctrinate impressionable children with radical racial and Marxist ideologies. Latasha echoes the great work of Booker T. Washington that "education is not a thing apart from life—not a 'system,' nor a philosophy; it is direct teaching how to live and how to work." 

She gave her personal testimony of perseverance to the Congressional House Committee on the Budget: "Poverty in America: Economic Realities of Struggling Families." In addition, her opinion piece, "God, Parents, and the ‘1619 Project'" featured in the Wall Street Journal, gives more insight into her underlying message of autonomy. "For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure." Philippians 2:13.

Latasha has also appeared on Fox and Friends, Newsmax, and C-SPAN, as well as many other podcasts and outlets, discussing Christian education, homeschooling, economic empowerment, the importance of the divine family structure; and the erosion of Biblical conservative values, especially in the black community to the present day.
