Stop Trafficking of Persons (S.T.O.P)


STOP is the beginning of a grassroots movement against global human trafficking and modern-day slavery.  Founded in the Spring of 2008 at CSU, Chico, STOP! was formed by students as a result of Dr. Janja Lalichs Social Movements class which is offered through the sociology department.

Our Mission

STOP! (Stop Trafficking Of Persons!) is committed to bringing awareness of global human trafficking and modern-day slavery to California State University, Chico and the community at large. We will encourage and practice nonviolence to establish a sustainable anti-human trafficking movement. We are dedicated to creating innovative, thoughtful programs and approaches, and to encourage effective action aimed at achieving our goals. We will also strive to foster a feeling of community that enables and empowers positive human connection and interaction related to this vital issue.
