The traumatic nature of human trafficking and the emotional toll on child welfare workers demands effective advocacy from experienced, passionate experts like Lisa Lucchesi. With nearly two decades of experience in the field, Lisa brings both deep knowledge and a sustained passion to the issue, contributing where she can to bring justice to those who have suffered and identify and protect imperiled youth.
A widely recognized expert in the field, Lisa has worked closely with Federal and State Law Enforcement and Judges across the United States on child exploitation and child trafficking questions. Beginning with a career in Child Protective Services in Arizona, she gained first-hand knowledge of the challenges children face and the systematic inadequacies that must be addressed to improve existing conditions.

This enables improved coordination between the Phoenix Police Department and the Arizona Department of Child Safety (thus allowing for better identification and prosecution of Human and Sex Trafficking cases).
Additionally, Lisa is a co-author of the Maricopa County Sex Trafficking Collaborative / Analysis of Three Years of Cases, published in December 2020, furthering Arizona’s leadership in the national anti-human-trafficking movement.
