April is Child Abuse Prevention month and Kids’ Voice of Indiana invites you to our annual “Go Blue For Kids” Gala. This blue tie event brings awareness to our year-round mission to amplify the voice of children and youth in the legal system to improve individual outcomes and inspire system wide advances. With your support, we can continue to serve Indiana’s most vulnerable children experiencing family instability, abuse and neglect.

Our “Go Blue for Kids” Gala features a gourmet dinner, an inspiring special guest, great music and dancing, wine pull and silent auction (including fabulous destination vacations!)

Join us for this fun evening as we turn down the lights and #TurnUpTheVolume to amplify the voices of more children than ever before.

Sade Burrell


Sade Burrell is a Master of Social Work graduate from the University of Southern California, and an undergraduate of San Diego State University. Sade has been recognized throughout the state of California for her efforts to eliminate child abuse through her advocacy work. Her advocacy work has led to the passing of Senate Bill 1252, a bill that provides former foster youth with stable housing until age 25 while enrolled in post-secondary education. As an author of two published books, What Are You Reaching For? and The Opportunity Guide, Sade has traveled the country impacting many lives. Now, as a doctoral student, Sade’s research focuses on exploring the impact leadership has on campus-based programs serving students who experienced foster care.
