Frank Meeink's story...has the power to change lives." - Morris Dees, Founder and Chief Trial Counsel, Southern Poverty Law Center
LOS ANGELES, CA, July 06, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Frank Meeink is a former Neo-Nazi who was recently arrested at two Black Lives Matter protests.
Meeink's personal story is believed to have inspired the movie American History X; He is the co-author of "Autobiography of a Recovering Skinhead".
Frank spent his youth in and out of the system, and now advocates against drug warrants. He believes the "War on Drugs" has moved the police away from their role as civil servants. Their power to violate citizens' 4th Amendment rights exacerbates social and racial inequities.
At a recent BLM protest in Downtown Los Angeles, Frank and his 16 year old son were tear gassed and shot at with rubber bullets.
Frank is a noted speaker for tolerance, diversity and mutual understanding in racial, political and all aspects of society.
At a time of growing division in our country, Frank's unique perspective and voice can help all of us connect the dots and bridge gaps in our understanding. He is available for commentary and interviews.
Autobiography of a Recovering Skinhead is Frank's raw telling of his descent into America's Nazi underground and his ultimate triumph over hatred and addiction. The story of Frank's downfall and redemption has the power to open hearts and change lives.
