As a former organizer for the White Aryan Resistance (WAR) at age 15 Tony McAleer became a Skin head, by 19 he was a fully fledged Neo Nazi, by 20 his intelligence and personality had him rise through the ranks to become the voice of leadership for the movement.
However, that was then and this is now… Today he is The Neo Compassionist and Chairman of the Board at “Life After Hate” The mission of Life After Hate is to demonstrate and practice the primal, basic goodness of humanity and to discover common threads that interconnect us all.
He will share with us how he as a middle class white kid ended up making the choices he did to become a violent racist skinhead leader due to the emotional and physical bullying he received in his childhood. Furthermore, when speaking about Bullying he says: Trying to deal with bullying without using compassion is like trying to treat cancer with Band-Aids.
He will share his touching story of what made him change from Neo-Nazi to Neo-Compassionist, and why we as leaders need more compassion in our business’, communities and political parties.
