The Fulcrum Democracy Forum Meets Andy Moore, Executive Director, National Association of Nonpartisan Reformers

Andy Moore is the Executive Director of the National Association of Nonpartisan Reformers, a broad group of organizations and supporters of pro-voter democracy reform, and serves an Entrepreneur-in-Residence at the Tom Love Center for Entrepreneurship at the University of Oklahoma Price College of Business.

In 2019, Andy helped start People Not Politicians, a grassroots movement to end gerrymandering by creating an independent redistricting commission in Oklahoma. Andy currently serves on the board of directors for Rank the Vote Oklahoma and the Oklahoma chapter of Generation Citizen.

He  is a staunch advocate for democracy and diplomacy, for civil and voting rights, and for making your corner of the world a better place. As a Licensed Professional Counselor for more than 10 years, he knows that taking the time to listen and build relationships with others will pave the way to a stronger Oklahoma.

Andy received a B.S. in Psychology and M.A. in Marriage and Family Therapy from Southern Nazarene University, as well as an MBA from the University of Oklahoma. His early professional experiences in mental health and public health highlighted the need for common-sense public policy that empowers people, not holds them back. In 2016, Andy founded Let’s Fix This as a way to encourage civic engagement and promote good policy in Oklahoma. He lives in Oklahoma City with his wife and three fantastic kiddos, and enjoys woodworking, running half marathons, eating tacos, and supporting public education.

As one of the initial driving forces behind the Bridge Alliance and as chairman of the board, David Nevins brings business acumen, vision and a tireless this-must-and-can-be-done zeal to the burgeoning movement to bridge divides to transform the political process.

As a business leader, Nevins excels at building bridges between people and organizations from the right, left and center for civilized conversation and then action.

He co-founded the Bridge Alliance because, as he says, “No matter how well managed and how well funded any one organization is, significant political reform will not happen without an alliance to further collaborative interactions. Together we can and will raise the collective impact of all.”

Nevins is also co-publisher of The Fulcrum, a daily new publication committed to protecting democracy by educating the public on issues that matter. The Fulcrum is a key piece of a larger strategy to build a pro-democracy constituency of millions of Americans by making it easier to find and act on civic engagement opportunities. The Bridge Alliance, The Fulcrum, and Citizen Connect are all interconnected in their support of the ecosystem of our community of pro-democracy organizations and concerned and engaged citizens.

He established and continues to work with The Nevins Fellow program at The Mccourtney Institute of Democracy at  Penn State University. The Nevins Fellows program allows students to complete internships at organizations that bring people together to solve common problems. In this program students begin by taking a Democratic Leadership class that introduces them to a different side of democracy—one that focuses not on campaigns and elections, but on bringing people together to work on common problems. Students learn about organizations doing this kind of work, and develop the skills necessary to facilitate conversations about community issues.

He is a member of the Aspen Institute Society of Fellows, with a focus on the Aspen Rodel Fellowship in Public Leadership.

Nevins graduated with honors in economics from Penn State in 1969 and received an M.B.A. in finance from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania in 1971. He continues as President of Nevins Real Estate Management.  Nevins is married to Catherine Moyal Nevins.  They currently reside in Palm Beach Gardens Florida and Cape May New Jersey.
