April is Child-abuse awareness month and I would guess there isn’t a reader out there who doesn’t know of a child that has been abused or as a child been abused themselves. Child-abuse comes in many forms and the impact of abuse stays with a child long after their abuser stops abusing. It can affect that child to adulthood and stay with them for life.
BIKERS FOR JUSTICE is a group of riders who are coming together from every walk of life, but the one issue that binds them together is preventing one more child from being abused.
It is difficult to know the scope of how much child-abuse and neglect really affect one of our most vulnerable members of our communities. Abused children are often isolated, especially when the trauma involves a caregiver they depend on every day. The harm many children face is not recognized or reported by adults.
Here is some statistics that one might find shocking:
- every 10 seconds a report of child abuse is made.
- 91% of child abuse perpetrators are parents
- 7.2 million children every year are referred to Child Protective Services.
- 4 to 5 children die from child abuse or neglect every day.
- 77% of child fatalities involve one parent.
- 75% of children who die of abuse and are under age 3.
The healing journey for the children that have experienced child abuse and neglect can be extremely painful. With the help of BIKERS FOR JUSTICE the healing processes can start. We work closely with the families, state and local agencies to protect children.
BIKERS FOR JUSTICE’s mission simple Every child has the right to feel safe in their environment. We look to give a child it’s power back. They will know that we got their backs, and they need not be afraid. We assist them in expressing themselves and to protect them to get their voice back to testify.
BIKERS FOR JUSTICE will focus to illuminate further abuse to a child with our physical presence and we will provide a 360° protection to prevent further abuse to this child and we will immediately respond to a child in need.
