RELEASE: CAP Welcomes Gypsy Moore as General Counsel

Washington, D.C. — Gypsy Moore is rejoining the Center for American Progress as its general counsel. Moore previously served as legal counsel at CAP from 2019 to 2021.

“I’m thrilled to welcome Gypsy back to CAP,” said Patrick Gaspard, CAP’s president and CEO. “Gypsy is a proven leader and a trusted colleague. As we look toward the opportunities and challenges that await Americans in the coming months and years, we couldn’t be happier to have Gypsy’s intellect and deep legal knowledge to help guide CAP to build the stronger and more equitable country that we all know is possible.”

Moore returns to CAP after serving in the Biden administration as senior counsel for the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of the General Counsel and a role as associate general counsel with the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

Prior to joining CAP in 2019, Moore completed a civil rights law fellowship with the National Education Association and was an associate at Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP, where her practice focused on litigation and government enforcement matters. Moore is a native of Oakland, California, and a graduate of Cornell Law School and Yale University.
