About Tony McAleer
Tony McAleer is author of the book The Cure for Hate and is an international speaker that strives to educate individuals, families, communities law enforcement and government that are struggling to grapple with the White Supremacist movements. Tony is Co-founder of the not for profit, Life After Hate, an organization that seeks help people leave White Supremacist movements behind. He volunteers his time with them to helping those who are where he once was.
In his youth and early adulthood, Tony was leader one of the largest Canadian Neo-Nazi skinhead organization ARM or Aryan Resistance Movement and an organizer for the White Aryan Resistance and Aryan Nations. He ran a computerized racist hotline that took him to the Supreme Court of Canada twice, was an articulate Holocaust denier, and built one of the first white supremacist websites for Resistance Records helping to usher in the Internet Age.
It was a long journey to turn his life around that was inspired by the birth of his daughter and then his son 15 months later. This journey took Tony through almost a thousand hours of individual and group counselling that has led to and very deep understanding of how people are drawn into these movements.
To help in not only his personal healing but the healing of the communities that he has harmed in the past, Tony regularly gives talks and finds way to give back, from donating proceeds of his book to regular speaking engagements to foster healing.
