Description

Megan McMorran was born in Boulder, Colorado in 1953. Her mother was a political activist in the 1960s and 1970s. Her father served in the US Navy during the Korean War. She eventually left Colorado to study at Lewis & Clark College at the age of eighteen. There, she majored in history and went abroad to France for the spring and fall of '78 where she researched various Basque uprisings in Spain that were going on at the time. She also interned at several correctional facilities in Oregon until she graduated from L&C in 1979. Post-graduation, she worked at Willamette Week as an editor, then did public relations for the Oregon College of Arts and Crafts. She then proceeded to work for a nonprofit called Portland Arts and Lectures for fifteen year until finally landing in her current position as the director of the Action Center at Mercy Corps outreach in downtown Portland, which she's held since 2009.
