The first African-American woman in Wisconsin history to serve in the U.S. House of Representatives, Congressmember Moore was first elected in 2005. In January of 2011, Congressmember Moore was elected Democratic Co-Chair of the Congressional Women’s Caucus.

She served as Democratic Vice-Chair from 2009 to 2011.
How does Gwen align with Project 100's values?
  • Economic Opportunity: Congressmember Moore is fighting to create the jobs of the future, including clean energy jobs and jobs in infrastructure. She supports equal pay for equal work, and policies that help low income women and families escape poverty. She supports comprehensive education reforms, for example, school safety initiatives, improved technology, smaller class sizes, after-school activities, and enhanced parent involvement.
  • Equal Treatment Under the Law: Congressmember Moore supports immigration laws and policies that align more closely with our core values of attracting the best and brightest in the world, and bolstering fairness and economic opportunity for all. She is a proponent of a tough but fair pathway to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented workers in America.
  • Healthy People & Communities: Congressmember Moore is a champion for protecting women’s access to a full range of reproductive health services. She believes all people should have access to affordable, quality health coverage, including those who rely on Medicaid and Medicare for their care.
