Sade Daniels 

Director of Career Development and BBLVK Justice

Sade Daniels is a highly sought and gifted public speaker, award winning spoken word artist and at a young age, has amassed over a decade of experience working for child welfare reform. Beginning at age 16, Sade has been apart of groundbreaking research on group homes, instrumental in widespread curriculum development for child welfare professionals throughout the state, as well as a dedicated practitioner, serving marginalized transition aged youth within the foster care system. Sade boldly analyzes and confronts the disproportionality of children of color in foster care and works collaboratively with key stakeholders to address implicit biases and the systemic racism that impacts children and families throughout the state.

Sade’s plight and triumphant journey has been featured in the San Francisco Chronicles, Essence Magazine and in Wee Pals Comic Strip as an influential figure in the Bay Area. She earned her bachelor’s degree from Philander Smith College and recently graduated with a Master of Social Welfare from the University of California, Berkeley. She currently serves as an Associate Governmental Program Analyst for the California Office of the Foster Care Ombudsperson with the State Department of Social Services. In addition to her policy and investigative work with the State, she also consults with MISSSEY, training statewide on the issue of Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Minors and innovative methods of direct practice and prevention. Sade is currently finishing her first novel to be released in 2019.
