BACA - Bikers Against Child Abuse

ImageThe sight of leather-clad tough-looking bikers often brings to mind … Hell’s Angels – gangs - drugs - and illegal activity.  Well, that impression might just be wrong – very wrong. The group of bikers might be members of BACA – Bikers Against Child Abuse.

Pam Musler “Nytro” and Kim Kari “Lil’ Wolf” give us a new perspective that shatters the typical biker stereotype. With the help of a short video they explained why the organization was formed and how it serves abused children.

John Paul Lily “Chief”, a licensed clinical social worker, recognized that the courts and law enforcement are ill prepared to participate in an abused child’s healing process and have limitations with regard to keeping these children safe. To fill that gap he founded Bikers Against Child Abuse. BACA takes a firm stand against all forms of child abuse; physical, sexual, emotional and child porn.

 

When a traumatized child victim of abuse is involved in a court proceeding or under the care of a child therapist … a referral to BACA may occur. The abused child is then “adopted” into the BACA family and two BACA members are assigned as the child’s primary contact. BACA then assumes the role of protector in a number of ways as can be seen in their Mission Statement

Bikers Against Child Abuse (BACA) 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.

BACA makes a difference … 

  • Improved Self Confidence
  • Diminished Regressive Behavior
  • Increased Feeling of Safety
  • Empowerment to Testify
  • Better Communication
  • Reduced Feeling of Guilt
  • Decreased Negative Behaviors
  • A Sense of Belonging, Acceptance and Independence

No child deserves to live in fear
