Morgan Lee is a contemplative activist. It is his job and his calling.

Morgan is a learner, teacher, and facilitator. He is especially interested in finding ways to help people to learn to live together while also honoring each other’s differences. Morgan works from a platform of equity and justice and does so in his work with Leading Up, LLC, of which he is the chief learning leader. He founded Leading Up after a 32-year career as a public-school educator.

Morgan works in schools, school districts, faith communities, non-profits, government agencies, and businesses to help people to build relationships and relational trust within community. He works with groups through the Circle of Trust® approach to create a process of shared exploration where people can find safe space to nurture personal and professional integrity and the courage to act on it.

Morgan is also on the leadership development team and is the lead trainer for CarolinaTIP at the University of South Carolina; a program designed specifically to retain teachers in the profession of education.

He serves as a team leader and a member of the human resource committee for MORE Justice. MORE Justice is a growing network of faith-based congregations which are culturally, economically, racially, geographically and religiously diverse working together to empower marginalized people and act powerfully to address serious community wide problems through direct action.

Much of Morgan’s work is in the shared struggle to help make systems more equitable. He believes it will take the work of justice and equity on the part of all of us to do so.
