About Us

“The Grace Network (TGN) began fighting human trafficking informally in January 2009. In the summer of 2011, TGN took it’s mission to the next level and became a formalized anti-trafficking initiative in Sacramento, CA. Since then, TGN has experienced tremendous growth in a period of four years – mobilizing thousands of people to combat human trafficking and being featured by local TV, radio, and print media. Now, with the GraceCity™ app launch, TGN’s team travels throughout California to equip and empower communities to holistically address trafficking and exploitation. TGN is beyond grassroots, it’s really a grass-seed movement. Human trafficking is a multifaceted issue. It requires a creative, powerful, and passionate response. TGN will continue to be that response and rally cities everywhere we go to respond. We truly believe IT TAKES A CITY TO FIGHT! We’re not building our kingdom, we’re building a movement that outlives us whether we get the recognition or not. Will you join us? Let’s go!”

Chris Stambaugh Bio

For 10 years, Chris has been fighting for the poor, hurting, & oppressed in a variety of roles. He’s worked with hundreds of exploited and high-risk individuals, managed a survivors of exploitation program, & currently serves as a consultant to anti-trafficking groups throughout California.

Chris’ passion is fueled by his own personal experience of growing up in a homeless family. Since then, Chris’ life is a testimony to those who feel they may never amount to anything. Armed with a message of hope, authenticity, and a thirst for justice, Chris is a sought-after speaker and trainer on issues of youth homelessness, human trafficking, & social justice.

Chris lives in Sacramento, CA with his gracious wife, Melisa, of seven years and 2.5 children: Kourage (5), Selah (3), & Samantha (due March 2015).
