Biker Group Gives Support to Child Abuse Victims
Something came across my news feed the other day that I didn't know about, and I think it's wonderful. The group I just learned about is called Bikers Against Child Abuse (B.A.C.A.) and what they are doing is great.
B.A.C.A. is an organization of bikers that will accompany children to court so that they don't feel nervous. Their mission statement on the website says, "We exist as a body of Bikers to empower children to not feel afraid of the world in which they live."
They have a whole process laid out on the website, so you can see how it works if you would like to contact them. There are different levels of intervention and the situation will determine which level of intervention is needed. The child also gets a vest with a B.A.C.A patch on the back, and other gifts that are usually donated from the community. After the initial meeting, the child will also be given the name and number of a couple members of B.A.C.A. that live close to the child.
Their whole point is to help these kids feel the support, and to give them the courage they need to go to court. B.A.C.A. chapters are all over the country and in multiple other countries. So, if they sound like a group that could help you or a child you know, you should contact them. They have chapters in Connecticut and New York.
Here is a YouTube clip, so you can see what they are about, and of course you can get more information on their website, bacaworld.org.
Thank you to B.A.C.A. for helping to protect these kids. You guys are amazing!
