He has served as a Senior Advisor for several clients including the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, the Service Employees International Union, (SEIU) Tides Foundation and the Democracy Fund Voice.   
 
Over the years Moore has played a key role in the advocacy and/or passage of major voting rights legislation including the National Voter Registration Act, the Help America Vote Act, and various pro-democracy reform legislative initiatives at the federal and state levels including campaign finance reform, immigration reform, and criminal justice reform initiatives.
 
In his earlier years of advocacy Moore was elected, President of the United States Student Association and was active in the passage of anti-apartheid legislation and the establishment of the Martin Luther King Jr. federal holiday. He has been a member of two Federal Commissions; the Martin Luther King, Jr. U.S. Federal Holiday Commission, chaired by the late Coretta Scott King, where he served from 1985 to 1991. He has also served on the United States Presidential Inaugural Committee as an events program manager. He is currently serving as a member of the U.S. Election Assistance Commission Advisory Board, where he serves as Vice Chair for the EAC Strategic Planning.
 
In Ohio, Moore has led several voting rights advocacy campaigns to combat voter suppression policies, mobilize voters in support of redistricting reform, workers rights, criminal justice reforms and environmental justice. In 2005 he founded the Ohio Voter Fund, a statewide coalition formed in the aftermath of the 2004 election and as a statewide vehicle to build ongoing grassroots support for electoral and campaign finance reforms across the state.
 
In 2011 he joined forces with former Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner to create Fair Elections Ohio which launched a successful statewide advocacy campaign to repeal HB 194, a regressive voter suppression bill passed by the Ohio Legislature in the 129th Ohio General Assembly. In 2015 he partnered with the Voter’s First Coalition that successfully passed a Constitutional Amendment Issue # 1 the created the state’s first Independent Redistricting Commission for state legislative races and in 2018 he was part of the Fair Elections=Fair Districts Ohio Coalition that successfully negotiated and helped pass a bi-partisan statewide redistricting reform ballot measure for congressional districts for the first time in Ohio’s history.  

In 2019 Moore is set to publish his first book, Fulfilling the Broken Promise of Democracy, a memoir of his over 30 years of voting rights advocacy and advancing political reforms in Ohio and across the United States.
