ROCKWALL TX – Texas State Rep. and Americans Ending Abuse Board Member Cindy Burkett (R-113) attended our Rockwall County family violence prevention meeting last night to hear our local Quinlan chapter of Bikers Against Child Abuse International (BACA) explain how they help children in court & elsewhere after they may have suffered child abuse.
Chapter president “Gonzo” said there are many times when the only supporters these children have are BACA members, since most abused children were mistreated by either family members or close friends and the children’s outcries are either too often not believed or ignored by their families.
“Our singular focus is on the empowerment of children,” he said. “We focus on one child at a time.”
He praised the work that Children’s Advocacy Centers do and said he hopes Rockwall area residents will establish a CAC as soon as possible to protect local children from abuse.
He added their chapter’s 27 members are anxious to become even more involved helping children in Rockwall County. All have undergone thorough background checks.
