B.A.C.A. Member

Are you interested in joining the Rhode Island chapter of Bikers Against Child Abuse™?

Patched members play an important role in the chapter and greatly lend to the success of the B.A.C.A.® mission. A patched member must be motivated, committed and eager to do everything possible to empower B.A.C.A.® children and accomplish our mission to create a safer environment for abused children.

Becoming a patched member of B.A.C.A.® is voluntary, but once you are patched, you will be expected to maintain a high participation level in mandatory B.A.C.A.® events. This will require a significant time commitment and that will mean personal sacrifice.

To become a patched member, you must:

  • Ride a motorcycle or join with someone who does.
  • Pass an FBI Background check.
  • Complete the B.A.C.A.® online training program in one year.
  • Participate in 80% of all mandatory B.A.C.A.® events.
  • Be able and willing to become a primary to a B.A.C.A.® child. This means being accessible to that child 24-7.
  • Be unanimously voted into the chapter after the one-year training period.

What do we look for in a B.A.C.A.® member?

  • Commitment – to the mission and to meet patched member requirements.
  • Courage – to do whatever it takes to protect a B.A.C.A.®
  • Passionate – about the B.A.C.A.®
  • Honourable – live by a set of ethical principles.
  • Loyal – to the mission and your brothers and sisters.
  • Respect – shown and earned.
  • Trustworthy – be true to your word and be reliable.
  • Integrity – doing the right thing, even when no one is looking.
