Ms. Piscapo is a human trafficking survivor, author and motivational speaker. Ms. Piscapo serves on advocacy boards to raise funds for victims, testifies before Congress as an expert witness and trains police on victim identification so that victims can be helped and not treated as criminals. Essentially, modern-day slavery (human trafficking) is the use of force, fraud, or coercion to make victims take part in commercial sex work or labor against their will.
Lisa is determined to help us bring awareness to as many people as possible about the different grooming processes that are used to trap people into unknowingly becoming victims of trafficking. Ms. Piscapo has volunteered with Generate Hope Safe House for Trafficked Women, San Diego Dream Center for Outreach, Point Loma Nazarene, “CAT” (Churches Against Trafficking) “KNOW MORE” at the Rock Church; and she partners with undercover task forces in the project to end human trafficking. Aside from her work with CSN, Ms. Piscapo is an ordained minister and founder of Hearts On Fire-Ministries which works with victims who have been freed from trafficking so that they can personally thrive and help other victims.
