MISSION STATEMENT

STOP is different. STOP’s mission goes beyond justice for individual survivors. STOP is using what happened to survivors in their past to CHANGE THE FUTURE for tens of thousands of children.

STOP’s California legislation is the first and only proposal to hold institutions accountable by imposing triple damages on institutions that COVER UP child sexual assault.

Success in California will begin a new nationwide effort to end COVER UPS of child sexual assault.
