This is a very important organisation to throw your weight behind. Why not help BACA help our children!
Bikers Against Child Abuse (BACA) exists with the intent to create a safer environment for abused children.
BACA exist as a body of Bikers to empower children so that they do not feel afraid of the world in which they live. BACA stands ready to lend their support to our wounded friends by involving them with an established, united organization. They work in conjunction with local and state officials who are already in place to protect children.
BACA desire to send a clear message to all involved with the abused child, “this child is part of their organization, and that they are prepared to lend their physical and emotional support to these children by affiliation, and their physical presence.”
BACA stands at the ready to shield these children from further abuse. They do not condone the use of violence or physical force in any manner, however, if circumstances arise such that we are the only obstacle preventing a child from further abuse, we stand ready to be that obstacle.
How BACA Works
Bikers Against Child Abuse, Inc. (BACA) is organized with a central contact person to receive calls from referring agencies and individuals. A recognized, authorized agency with which the child has had contact determines that the child is still frightened by his or her environment. The agency representative contacts BACA, or refers the individual to contact BACA and the name and address of the child is given to our BACA/Child Liaison. The Liaison determines that the case is legitimate, meaning that the authorities have been contacted, and the case in being processed within the system. The Liaison contacts the family and an initial ride is organized to meet the child at their home or in some other location. The entire BACA chapter rides to meet the child and he/she is given a vest with a BACA patch sewn on the back. The child is free to wear the vest or not, and we support their decision. The child is also given bumper stickers, and other gifts that are generally donated by the public. These initial visits generally last about a half an hour.
