As the host of the Lurie Daniel Favors Show on SiriusXM’s Urban View channel 126, Ms. Daniel Favors brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise on racial and social justice to the airwaves. An activist and attorney with a long-standing commitment to racial and social justice, Ms. Daniel Favors joined the Center for Law and Social Justice at Medgar Evers College CLSJ as General Counsel in 2015, prior to being named Executive Director in 2022.

She later founded Daniel Favors Law PLLC, a law firm that focused on economic and racial justice. In 2021, Ms. Daniel Favors was appointed as a commissioner to the NYC Racial Justice Commission, a body created by Mayor Bill de Blasio to increase equity among different racial groups by changing city laws that uphold and enable systemic racism and other identity-based systemic discrimination.
