Theodore A. Moore is taking the reins at the Alliance for a Greater New York. Moore was tapped to lead the economic and environmental advocacy group, also known as ALIGN, starting in October. A life-long New Yorker, Moore has long-demonstrated a passion for helping his community, and with a community organizing background, he has worked on legislation with everyday New Yorkers in mind.

Starting as an organizer with various campaigns, including the Working Families Party and Families United for Racial and Economic Equality, Moore is now taking the helm as executive director of ALIGN. The organization represents a coalition of labor and community organizations that, among other things, advocated for a higher minimum wage and helped organize opposition to Amazon HQ2. Moore is leaving his role as New York Immigration Coalition’s vice president of policy and programs to take up the new position leading the alliance as they advocate for economic and climate justice.

The new position is a homecoming for Moore, as he was a staff organizer at ALIGN when it was founded. Moore talked to City & State about what brought him back to ALIGN, where he hopes to take the organization, and how he sees ALIGN working in the current state of the labor movement.
