Denise Morgan, former Coalition director, dies

April 24, 2006

Denise Morgan, a legal scholar and a former director of the New York City Coalition Against Hunger, died April 7. She was a valued member of the Coalition’s family and an asset to the New York City anti-hunger movement who will be deeply missed.

She was born in Manhattan, grew up in the Bronx, and attended the Chapin School in Manhattan before proceeding to Yale University for her undergraduate and law school education. She then taught law at Florida State University, clerked for a federal judge in California, helped draft the Eritrean constitution from 1995 to 1997, and served on the faculty at New York Law School from 1995 on.

Whether she was fighting to ensure equality in school funding or supporting the Coalition’s work against hunger, Denise exemplified the country’s best traditions in the continuing struggle for social justice.
