Upcoming Speaker August 6th

Abby Germer has been passionate about Human Trafficking since 2009 when she found herself in the middle of helping women in the Red Light District in Mumbai, India. From there she has spent her time serving and giving back to women who have been exploited. She was on the startup team for Refuge for Women North Texas in 2015 where she originally served as Board Chairman. In 2016, Abby came on staff as Program Director and currently serves as City Director. Her years of experience in both non-profit work and walking alongside survivors has helped her insight and made her passionate about this cause when it comes to Human Trafficking. 

She has been married to her husband, Jon, for 18 years and has two girls, Trinity and Kamryn. They currently live in Argyle, Texas and spend most of their time raising two active girls and their extracurricular activities.
