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.
