About Andy Williams Jr.
Andy Williams Jr. is a licensed Baptist minister, social entrepreneur, activist, and Libertarian candidate for President of the United States. Williams, who rather than shy away from the many tumultuous chapters in his life, uses them as fuel for the fire he now feels in his quest for social justice. The great-grandson of sharecroppers, Williams was raised in a white middle-class family by his black father and white stepmother but got involved in gangs and street crime after they separated when he was 12. Williams dropped out of high school, joined a gang, was arrested for robbery and went to prison.
After fighting a wrongful foreclosure for thirteen years against the Bank of New York Mellon, Williams received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Paralegal Studies from Lewis University. He then joined the NAACP and went to work for Kozar Law Office in Elmhurst, Illinois. He then started Freelance Paralegal Services and Consumer Action Resource Group, a human rights advocacy group. Williams, a visionary is an inventor who received his first patent in 2019.
His passion for social justice is fueled by the suicides of his two younger brothers and the 2019 mass shooting in his hometown of Aurora by his childhood friend Gary Martin. Williams is more committed than ever to make a difference which is why he is taking his life experience to be the change he wants to see in this world.
