Over a year ago, Lee went to the Roanoke Rapids police station to take out permits for a march against child abuse he was organizing. He has also worked to raise thousands of dollars for Halifax Regional Medical Center to create a pediatric safe room as part of his mission.

In November, Lee's activism caught the attention of Marvel. He has been featured on Marvel's Hero Project series on Disney+ which created an episode about Lee and a comic in his image.
