Donald Cohen is a long-time organizer for social justice who is always on the hunt for great music. An early Dead-head he’s moved on to exploring today’s new music (from folk to indie to blues to whatever Alabama Shakes and Lake Street Dive do) – a decade he thinks is the best era in music since before disco. In his spare time he is helping to develop the Autism Creatives Collective, a community of talented creative writers, artists and musicians on the austistic spectrum who support each other in their creative endeavors. During the day, he runs a non-profit think tank called In the Public Interest. His opinion pieces and articles have appeared in the New York Times, Reuters, the Los Angeles Times, The New York Daily News, The New Republic, and other online and print outlets.
