Latasha is a passionate, bold, spirit-filled leader that believes in Conservative Biblical principles.
Latasha and her husband Ronald were born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Latasha spent 33 years of her life there before the Lord called them to serve the resilient people of Illinois, residing in the great City of Chicago since 2011. Latasha and Ronald have been married for 16 + years. Together they have four beautiful children, a homeschooled college graduate and three currently homeschooling alongside other children from the community.
Latasha is the founder of Christian Home Educators Support System, EPIC Cafe, Empowering Parents, and Igniting Communities. She is the Illinois State Coordinator for ParentalRights.org, a 1776 Unites Achiever, a candidate for Illinois Lieutenant Governor, and 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.”
She gave her personal testimony of perseverance to the Congressional House Committee on the Budget: “Poverty in America: Economic Realities of Struggling Families.” 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, C-SPAN, and many other podcasts and outlets, discussing African American history from 1776 to the present day.
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.”
