Students Taking on Poverty

The Birth of a Cause

Stanford’s Students Taking on Poverty (STOP) was founded in the fall of 2006 by a group of Stanford students who were passionate about alleviating poverty and inequality in the United States and committed to motivating their fellow students to care about these issues and take action. Now, STOP continues to fight against poverty not only in the United States but also, in developing countries abroad. On campus, STOP works with other student organizations to host events and initiatives to increase campus awareness about poverty and inequality at the local, state, national, and international level. Additionally, STOP also works off-campus with local organizations in the Mid-Peninsula area to increase financial and human capital resources for low-income residents.
