Sammy Rangel is an author, social worker, peace activist, speaker, trainer and father. His autobiography, “Fourbears: The Myths of Forgiveness”, chronicles his life from the physical and sexual abuse he endured as a child to his path of self-destruction that culminated in a 15 1/2-year prison sentence. In 2012, Sammy founded Formers Anonymous, a national self-help group based on the 12-step model for people addicted to street life and violence. In 2017, he was honored in a special tribute to Everyday Heroes in the Global Campaign Against Violent Extremism. Sammy holds a Master of Social Work from Loyola University-Chicago and previously served as a program director for a youth outreach program in his hometown of Racine for 16 years.
Tony McAleer is a former organizer and recruiter for the White Aryan Resistance. After launching Canadian Liberty Net (a computer operated voice messaging center), Tony was charged with violating the Canadian Human Rights Act that prohibits the dissemination of hateful messages. Tony’s love for his children led him on a spiritual journey of personal transformation. Financial hardship and the harsh realities of single parenthood brought him to a place of compassion and forgiveness. Tony has spent the past six years as principal of McAleer & Associates Wealth Management and traveling as a motivational speaker. He is a former Executive Director of Life After Hate.
