Andi Buerger is Co-Founder of Beulah’s Place, a 501(c)3 non profit serving at-risk homeless teens in danger of abuse, trafficking or other criminally predatory activities. Andi, herself a victim of unspeakable abuse, is a highly sought after international speaker and advocate for those who cannot speak for themselves. She is also Founder of Voices Against Trafficking™, an international organization dedicated to the eradication of human trafficking in the United States and abroad. Voices Against Trafficking has just released its first book, Voices Against Trafficking - The Strength of Many Voices Speaking As One (Amazon.com).
With degrees in law and in business administration, Andi has enjoyed successful careers which include corporate training, public relations, education, and media. Her book, A Fragile Thread of Hope - One Survivor’s Quest to Rescue, is available on Amazon.com, and 45% of the net proceeds go to victims of child abuse and sex trafficking.
Andi speaks extensively to legislators and human rights groups, universities, and churches and organizations around the country to share her testimony and to create greater awareness of our nation's child trafficking epidemic and the devastating cost to America's future.
She and her husband, Ed, are celebrating 21 years of marriage this year as well as their recent adoption of their daughter, who was one of the girls they rescued seven years ago and whose story appears in Andi’s book under the name “Allison”.
