Biographical Details

"Adam Eidinger initiated the Mintwood Media Collective in May of 2000. He has worked for dozens of groups and businesses to generate media coverage and train communication staff. Adam is currently working on behalf of Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps to promote their sourcing of Fair Trade and organic olive oil from Israeli and Palestinian farmers. While at Rabinowitz, he played a central role in promoting press coverage of the Tibetan Freedom Rally outside the U.S. Capitol, the largest rally for human rights in China and Tibet ever held on American soil. Adam was lead media coordinator for the World Bank and IMF protests in April 2000 which where featured in every American news magazine and newspaper as well on national and local television." [1]

He used to be married to Alexis Baden-Mayer.

"After graduation, Eidinger moved to Israel for a short period, then returned home and wound up at Rabinowitz Communications, a public-relations outfit with close ties to the Clinton administration. Eidinger helped plan the Dalai Lama’s trip to the United States and went to Croatia on behalf of George Soros’s Open Society Institute, which was fighting that government’s crackdown on independent journalists. Eidinger was a natural, said Steve Rabinowitz, the firm’s founder.

"In early 2000, Rabinowitz fired his young apprentice. The firm encouraged its employees to do pro bono work, and Eidinger began helping groups protesting the International Monetary Fund. Some of Rabinowitz’s paying clients had ties to the IMF, and he told Eidinger to find another cause. He didn’t, and Rabinowitz let him go. It was the right decision, Rabinowitz said, but one that still pains him." [1]

He chairs the D.C. Cannabis Campaign and co-owned the head shop Capitol Hemp until police closed it down.
