Tony Muhammad

For more than two decades, Nation of Islam student Minister Tony Muhammad has dedicated his life to helping bring peace to the streets of Los Angeles while building bridges between people of diverse races, religions and beliefs at local, state, and national levels. In 2012, he co-founded the United in Peace movement in the streets of South Los Angeles, bringing together notorious rival gangs for motorcycle rallies known as “Peace Rides” through strife-ridden neighborhoods. These Peace Rides have inspired other cities dealing with warring gangs to establish similar programs. His work ranges from skillful conflict resolution between warring gang members, fighting against hunger with food programs and distribution, to promoting peace in the streets and advocating for justice for murdered children and their families, and bridging the gap between law enforcement and the community. Minister Tony’s movement is diminishing violent crime through distribution of “The Million Man March Pledge” and The Way to Happiness common-sense moral code. He is a regional representative for the Nation of Islam and is the Student Western Regional Minister of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of the Islam. He has appeared in many documentaries addressing inner-city gangs in his role as a peacemaker.
