This has become my passion. It is an association of Men and Women who ride motorcycles and dedicate their time and total being to the children. More than the association is the Brotherhood/Sisterhood of all the members and supporters worldwide. We do look out for one another at all times. Really it has become my extended family. We are all referred to by road names and I am called “PAW” Been somewhat difficult in the beginning to respond when someone is calling it out but I’m getting the hang of it. We all begin as Supporters and then after a year or so of courses and webinars we can become “PATCHED” as of Dec 2015 we, approved as an organization, sildenafil are still waiting for our charter status which allows those older supporters to become patched. Hopefully I will qualify in the new year of 2016. As of December we are all working towards building our clubhouse.
So you say. What is BACA? It is and organization to empower children of abuse who have been referred to us by Courts, sale Police and Victim Services. We will adopt the child into our BACA organization with a ceremony where we visit their home with a lot of motorcycles, give them a Vest, a Road Name and a Teddy Bear which all of us have filled with love. We promise to be there for them if they are threatened or scared. We also escort them to the court, sit in the courtroom with them and empower them to not only speak up but “ Not To Be Afraid”.
Our Mission Statement says everything:
Bikers Against Child Abuse (B.A.C.A.) exists with the intent to create a safer environment for abused children. We exist as a body of Bikers to empower children to not feel afraid of the world in which they live. We stand ready to lend support to our wounded friends by involving them with an established, united organization. We work in conjunction with local and state officials who are already in place to protect children. We desire to send a clear message to all involved with the abused child that this child is part of our organization, and that we are prepared to lend our physical and emotional support to them by affiliation, and our physical presence. We stand at the ready to shield these children from further abuse. We 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.

I am a member of Bikers Against Child Abuse. The die has been cast. The decision has been made. I have stepped over the line. I won’t look back, let up, slow down, back away, or be still.
My past has prepared me, my present makes sense, and my future is secure. I’m finished and done with low living, sight walking, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tamed visions, mundane talking, cheap giving, and dwarfed goals.
I no longer need pre-eminence, prosperity, position, promotions, plaudits, or popularity. I don’t have to be right, first, tops, recognized, praised, regarded, or rewarded. I now live by the faith in my works, and lean on the strength of my brothers and sisters. I love with patience, live by prayer, and labor with power.
My fate is set, my gait is fast, my goal is the ultimate safety of children. My road is narrow, my way is rough, my companions are tried and true, my Guide is reliable, my mission is clear. I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded, or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of adversity, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity.
I won’t give up, shut up, let up, until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, and showed up for all wounded children. I must go until I drop, ride until I give out, and work till He stops me. And when He comes for His own, He will have no problem recognizing me, for He will see my BACA backpatch and know that I am one of His. I am a member of Bikers Against Child Abuse, and this is my creed.
