Bio

Marlon Amprey is an attorney, former educator, and third-generation resident of the current 40th District. Marlon has a deep commitment to Baltimore and has been working towards leveraging his corporate and non-profit experience to improve the communities his family has called home for more than 70 years. Educator After graduating from the University of Maryland at College Park, Marlon, following in the footsteps of his uncle and mentor the late Dr. Walter Amprey, became an elementary and middle school teacher, as a Teach for America Corps Member, and received a Master's in Education. Marlon later became a grade level lead teacher at the SEED School of Maryland in West Baltimore, where he lived on campus leading his students to monumental test scores in math, exceeding the averages for some of the state's most wealthy counties. Government, Law and Policy After a successful career in teaching, Marlon attended The University of Pennsylvania Law School, receiving scholarships from the Congressional Black Caucus and the NAACP's Legal Defense and Education Fund. During his time in law school, he stayed engaged in helping develop policy to alleviate issues that affect the Black community and other disenfranchised communities. Marlon received awards for his commitment to pro-bono legal services while in law school. Marlon helped create the Journal of Law and Public Affairs at the University of Pennsylvania Law School, an Ivy League law journal focused on creating legal scholarship grounded in ways to improve government and policy. During law school and as part of a legislative drafting course, Marlon commuted from Philadelphia to Washington, D.C. every week to work for the late Congressman Elijah Cummings. He was able to learn directly from the late Congressman and his staff ways in which to obtain widespread community buy-in for issues that disproportionately affect disenfranchised communities of color. Advocacy and Service Marlon currently practices corporate law, with a focus in corporate transactions and corporate governance. Marlon has represented some of the state's largest companies and has advised several of the nation's largest companies and fastest-growing emerging companies. However, even as a busy attorney, Marlon remains committed to improving the outcomes for children in Baltimore. Marlon serves on the board of directors with the Boys and Girls Club of Metropolitan Baltimore and Code in the Schools, and also serves as a Big Brother for Big Brothers Big Sisters of America. Marlon stays engaged with various organizations, nationally known activists, and schools working towards increasing funding and other resources that are owed to the children and families of Baltimore. Most recently, Marlon joined the Advisory Council of the No Boundaries Coalition where he has provided legal support for their endeavors related to building out their food distribution services. Marlon was also appointed to Mayor Brandon Scott's transition team as a member of the Governance and Structure Committee. Family and Community Marlon has lived in Evergreen Lawn, Pigtown, the Carol South/Carrollton Ridge community, and currently resides in Hampden with his wife, Normandi, and daughter, Amara.
