About TJ

TJ LeydenTJ Leyden, former neo-Nazi Skinhead takes you on the tough but fulfilling journey from a world of hate into a world of hope. As a leading recruiter, organizer and propagandist for the white supremacist and neo-Nazi movement, Leyden spent 15 years promoting hate, bigotry and racism. After turning his back completely on the white power movement, Leyden worked for nearly seven years with the Task Force Against Hate at the Simon Wiesenthal Center, then on his own promoting tolerance with StrHATE Talk Consulting.

With the release of Skinhead Confessions, people are requesting even more guest appearances in the media. What makes TJ most happy are the schools he will visit to bring more kids the message of HOPE, rather than hate.
