(Washington, D.C.) — Human trafficking survivor, Andi Buerger, the founder of Beulah’s Place, and an international speaker will begin the fall speaking tour in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, November 7, 2018, for government agencies training seminars to prevent human trafficking across the nation.
Buerger stated…”When we allow our children to be sold, to be used as a commodity, to be violated, persecuted, neglected, discarded, and preyed upon by criminal influences, we deteriorate as a civilized community because there is nothing civilized about using the weak, the innocent, the vulnerable for selfish gain. I am living and leaving a positive legacy that can be adapted on any scale for the purpose of saving the future of our country, and that future is our youth.”
She was violated at the age of six months to seventeen years old, by all immediate family members and assorted others during that period. Today, the term is trafficking, but back then there was no place to run for help or safety. Her desire for justice led to law school, but she realized justice is less about law and more about action. In 2008, she co-founded Beulah’s Place to help at-risk homeless teens who have been victimized and discarded to die on the streets. Her primary focus and education tool is to engage these street teens and the daily work with law enforcement and the District Attorney’s offices to better assess and serve vulnerable youth.
Andi Buerger is speaking nationwide to universities, women’s clubs, government agencies, and members of Congress. Her message will also be featured nationwide for winter 2018 and spring 2019. To schedule booking events with Andi Buerger, please firstname.lastname@example.org
