FACT ALLIANCE / LET'S RESPOND
(Anti-Human Trafficking Organization)
Tony serves as President of FACT Alliance, an anti-human trafficking non-profit he founded in 2007. After the birth of his daughter in 2006, Tony became very active in the issue of Human Trafficking, particularly where it involves children being sold into the global sex trade. He founded the non-profit organization FACT Alliance (Fight Against Child Trafficking) to help combat the issue through their Let's Respond campaign and through presentations in colleges and the community.

Each year he helps organize and hosts the KSBR Birthday Bash, a live concert event featuring approximately 30 headlining jazz artists on stage together to raise money for a local jazz station. He has organized benefits for The SMART Foundation, whose purpose is to fill the void left by disappearing music programs. Tony and his band have also appeared at events supporting NEGU, Children's Hospital, The OC & LA Philharmonics, Muscular Dystrophy Association, American Cancer Society, and more.
