Tough-looking bikers attend court with abused kids to give them the strength they need

It’s hard to imagine being a victim of abuse – let alone experiencing it as a child. But that’s the sad reality for many little ones around the world.

According to Childhelp, a report of child abuse is made in the United States every ten seconds.

For kids whose abusers are caught, another scary step that many of them must take involves going to court. As one can imagine, that would be very difficult (and terrifying) to stand up against a person who hurt you – so having a strong support system would make a huge difference.

Thanks to members of an international motorcycle group, that’s what these kids have.
Burly bikers consisting of men and women stand by their creed: “No child deserves to live in fear.” Known as Bikers Against Child Abuse, Inc., or simply BACA, this global organization empowers abused kids through their physical strength, numbers, and tough attitude.

BACA helps make a difference for abused children who need suport.
In 1995, John Paul “Chief” Lilly from Provo, Utah, came up with the idea for BACA. In the 25 years since first starting the organization, it’s expanded by opening chapters all over the United States. Not only is this a national endeavor, but also one that helps children in other countries.
