Ronald and Latasha are passionate, bold, spirit-filled leaders and determined advocates of conservative Biblical principles. They are unwavering in their conviction that parents have the ultimate responsibility and authority to nurture their children, according to Proverbs 22:6 and Deuteronomy 6. In this, they believe that it is incumbent upon 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.
About our Founders
Ronald and Latasha were born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, but the Lord called them to serve the resilient people of Illinois, so they have resided in the great City of Chicago since 2011. They have been married for 17 years and have four beautiful children. Their eldest is a homeschooled college graduate, and they are currently homeschooling their three other children and other children from the community.
Ronald and Latasha are Overseers and Evangelists of Our Report Ministries & Publications, an evangelistic outreach ministry based in Chicago, IL. They are the founders of Christian Home Educators Support System, Ky'Ijel Group Christian Academy, EPIC Café (Empowering Parents Igniting Communities), and Team Illinois; they are also the Chaplain of the Southside Republicans Organization.
In addition, Latasha is the Illinois State Coordinator for ParentalRights.org, a 1776 Unites Achiever, 21st Ward Republican Committeewoman, and a former candidate for Lieutenant Governor of Illinois. She has been awarded 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 16 years, Latasha has been a vocal critic of the one-size-fits-all public school system, railing against its propensity to usurp parental authority, sexualize children, and indoctrinate them with radical racial and Marxist ideologies. Latasha echoes the great work of Booker T. Washington, who said, "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.
Together, they have over 22 years of entrepreneurial experience. Ronald is a barber, clipper technician, and owner of 3rd Phase Barbershop in the South Shore Community, as well as a 5th Ward Republican Field Organizer for the Southside Republicans Organization.
Latasha has over 14 years of real estate experience and has earned several certifications in Property Management and Non-profit Housing. She received a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Trinity Christian College in Palos Heights, IL.
