Preserving the Historical and Cultural Richness of Our Community!
Marc Morgan has lived in Washington, DC for over 10-years and is a proud Ward 1 resident. Marc is a very active member of the D.C. community, volunteering his time and energy for several community-based organizations, and is an active voice in local DC politics. Marc has been elected twice as President of the LeDroit Park Civic Association, and serves on the Boards of Adams Morgan Mainstreet, D.C. Black Pride, and Log Cabin Republicans.
Professionally, Marc is a fundraiser and strategist for many environmental, LGBT, and HIV/AIDS initiatives, and has also worked for years in political fundraising and events planning.
More recently, Marc was a candidate for D.C. Council (Ward 1). During his campaign, Marc promoted stronger school reform, more oversight into D.C. Government, job creation and expanding the Districts investment into environmental solutions around energy efficiency and renewable energy.
In addition to his work to support and protect the environment and further the educational priorities of the District of Columbia, Marc has also worked in the HIV/AIDS community locally and nationally. As a fundraiser and lobbyist, he promoted and secured funding for HIV/AIDS services that provided measurable reductions in new infection rates. His work was primarily based around communities of color, and people living with HIV/AIDS. Understanding how the myths and stigmas of HIV affect low-income communities, he worked with local and state agencies, corporations and foundations to identify resources and out-reach strategies that promoted prevention in some of the most highly affected communities.
Like his direct descendent - Garret A. Morgan (inventor of the stop light, gas mask and fire suit) - Marc has innovative ideas to drive the community towards the future, not the past. He is an entrepreneur and small business owner who fights to bring jobs back to the District of Columbia to propel a better economy, more small business, less crime and better educational choices for those living in Washington, D.C.
Marc is a graduate of Miami University, with a B.A in Political Science. He is also the proud father of a US Marine, his 19 year old son, D.J
