Bikers Against Child Abuse

Peter Haden

Jailhouse tattoos. Cold stares. Outlaw gangs.

These are images to come to mind for many when they hear the word "bikers."

But there’s an international organization of bikers that puts that tough reputation to good use: to help children.

Bikers Against Child Abuse, or BACA, is an international organization of motorcycle riders that works to create a safer environment for abused kids. Their goal is to empower children not to live in fear of the world in which they live, said Chops, president of the BACA Seven Bridges Chapter in Jacksonville.
