Program Director, ATC Education Fund | Netroots Nation


Deyden understands the power of music: As a young Tibetan, she saw millions learn about her country while working on the Tibetan Freedom Concerts with the Beastie Boys. Today, she designs programs and strategies for artists' social change work at Air Traffic Control, a nonprofit providing activist and philanthropic support to musicians. Her work includes producing artist activism retreats and fact finding trips for national musicians to learn and more closely connect to the issues they are passionate about, as well as how to be more effective in their activism and philanthropy work.
