Founder and director

Travis Moore was the Legislative Director for Rep. Henry A. Waxman, the former Chairman and Ranking Member of the Energy and Commerce Committee, who had jurisdiction over wide-ranging matters of technology policymaking. Travis has launched a number of programs to build human capital and improve technological capacity inside and outside of Congress including:

  • The first Congressional digital communications training program in Congress, the Democratic Academy Fellowship.

  • The first Congressional staff conference, the "Dem Confab," for over 150 senior Democratic House and Senate staff.

  • Strategic planning workshops conducted for over 100 staff and ten Member offices.

  • The Legisletters platform, developed in partnership with NYU's GovLab, which captures and centralizes the policymaking letters sent by Members of Congress.

Travis is the Co-Founder of Congress Too, a group of 1500 former Congressional staffers that brought the #MeToo movement to Capitol Hill and spearheaded a reform overhaul signed into law in late 2018.

Travis' work has been featured in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Re/codePolitico, The Hill, Roll Call and other outlets.  He can be reached at Travis [at] TechCongress.io or @travismoore
