Founder and Director
Chris Stambaugh returns to CSU, Chico to talk about the work of The GRACE Network, a Sacramento-based organization he founded that provides services to victims of human trafficking, especially sexually-exploited youth. The Grace Network continues to expand, growing from 12 to 1,400 entries in its resource database. The organization has now engaged with over 300 agencies/groups in the private, public, and religious sectors. Mr. Stambaugh also notes that The GRACE Network has working relationships with local law enforcement agencies. As CSU, Chico professor and anti-human trafficking activist Dr. Kate Transchel states in her introduction, it is hoped that a similar network of resources can be established in the North State region, including Chico.
