Bikers Against Child Abuse to speak at WWU

An organization of bikers united against child abuse will
speak at William Woods University Thursday.
The program, which is free and open to the public, will be
held at 4 p.m. in the Library Auditorium. It is sponsored by the WWU social
work department in conjunction with Child Abuse Awareness Month.
Bikers Against Child Abuse (B.A.C.A.) helps abused children by
providing a support group. They use road names to conceal their identities from
The organization was founded to help keep abused children
safe and empower them to tell their stories. Members visit the homes of abused
children and often accompany them to court to give them a sense of security,
believing that children who feel safe are more likely to provide the necessary
evidence to prosecute child abusers.                                                       

Bikers Against Child Abuse (B.A.C.A.) members present an
informational program at William Woods University a year ago. They will return
to campus Thursday to give another presentation.
