Morgan Dunn, Executive Assistant
Morgan Dunn serves as the Executive Assistant for the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD). In this role, she ensures that the day-to-day operations of the organization runs smoothly and is an integral part of helping to drive the leadership and development goals to fulfill the mission of AAPD.
Morgan initiates and implements system improvements to create and build relationships with external stakeholders. She received her B.A. in Political Science from Howard University. Before joining AAPD, Morgan was a legal intern for the Office of the Attorney General for the District of Columbia. She continued her political career, working for the Maryland State House of Representatives as a Legislative Aide. After graduating from college, Morgan worked for several social justice organizations to help cultivate a culturally inclusive learning environment for underrepresented girls in D.C.
Her passion for the disability community stems from the desire to combat microaggressions that children face for being disabled. She hopes to create a learning-based program that seeks to educate children about the disability community through a curriculum in the education system. When she is not working in the civil rights space, she operates her online consignment boutique to help spark diversity amongst women of color in the fashion industry.
