Chia Morgan is a lifelong resident Flint, MI and is most known for her unwavering love for her City and her quest to
ensure that it’s a thriving community in years to come.
She graduated from University of Michigan-Flint where she obtained a Bachelor’s in Social Work and Masters in
Public Administration. Chia is currently employed with the State of Michigan. In addition, she is Program
Coordinator for a non-profit organization; Well of Hope where she created the Blessed to be a Blessing thanksgiving
dinner for less fortunate families in the area. She is also the founder of the annual family fun day; Steps to Healing a
Broken Generation which offers various resources to families in efforts to break the cycle of poverty and decrease
violence amongst youth. She understands that there is power in voting and has also founded the annual “Your Voice
Matters, Your Vote Counts” voter registration drive in conjunction with the Michigan Secretary of State.
Throughout the Flint Water Crisis, Morgan has worked to help families in the fight against lead contaminated water.
Some of the work includes providing all families of the Blessed to be a Blessing dinner with cases of water to take
home and coordinating events to provide families of lower socio-economic status with water deliveries to their front
doors. Additionally, she has worked with individuals from other states to identify strategies to assist the families via
cash donations, water donations and the delivery of water filters for their homes. Prior to food resource sites being
created, Morgan worked with a local grocer to establish two shopping days for families to learn about foods that
help children to fight against lead exposure; families were provided with foods that are high in calcium and iron at
no cost to them.
In 2017, Chia expressed her passion for politics and dedication to the City of Flint when she ran for the 6th Ward
City Council office. She advanced through the Primary Election and lost to the incumbent official just shy of 100
votes during the General Election. Morgan knows that the key to changing the disparaging policies on the local,
state and national level require those with true passion for equity to compete for these offices.
She is currently a member of the selection committee for the Priority Children’s breakfast and also Habitat for
Humanity. Morgan was recently appointed to chair the Youth Works Committee for the Flint Branch of the NAACP
and is also member of the Neighborhood Small Grants Committee for the Community Foundation of Greater Flint.
She previously served as a member of the City of Flint Master Steering Committee, Mayor’s Youth Cabinet and
Flint and Genesee Leadership Alliance. Morgan is an active member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated.
Her most important and favorite title is mother to her five year old daughter, Malia.
