Describing himself as a spiritual-being experiencing life as an American of African-Ancestry (with an athletically-professional pedigree), Tony Scruggs is a paradigm maker and transformational speaker, incorporating restorative justice & social change with personal power & nonviolent communication (NVC)!
As the son of an LGBT father (also an NVC trainer) who grew up across the street from Stanford University, Tony joined a fraternity @ Ucla, played in the big leagues and has acted in movies & sports commercials.

Known as #TheEmpathyGuy Tony Scruggs speaks on compassion @ home, in the classroom, in society & in the workplace.
