About Our State Partner:
Shasta County Chemical People
The Shasta County Chemical People, Inc. is a non-profit community-based group which promotes and supports the development of a safe, strong community free from racism, violence, alcohol, tobacco and other drug abuse.
Founded by a group of concerned parents in 1983 out of the Just Say No parent movement. The founding members soon found their passion in focusing on youth and mobilizing the power of the community to combat racism, violence, alcohol, tobacco and other drugs in Shasta County. That passion soon birthed the Shasta County Chemical People; a non-profit, youth and adult led organization, which promotes and supports the development of a safe, strong community for youth and families free from racism, violence, alcohol, tobacco and other drug abuse.
