BIKER NEWS -- ROSWELL, NM -- While they may look intimidating, Guardians of the Children is a biker organization that has dedicated itself to building awareness and providing unconditional support to children that are victims of sexual abuse.

“What we are is a child abuse advocacy group. We are not a biker gang, we are not a club, we are not an MC, but we do a ride and most of us do ride bikes and we help out kids,” said Rocket, one of founders of Guardians of the Children.

Guardians of the Children in the Pecos Valley Chapter is present in the tri-county areas of southeastern New Mexico - working in Chavez, Eddy and Lee counties.

“Just because the abuse stops doesn’t mean that the damage is gone. Some of these kids have no hope. Until we finally get introduced to them, they don’t know where to go. They don’t know where to turn, and it isn’t just the children - it’s the families we are here to help too,” said Rocket.

Originally, The Guardians of the Children biker group was started in San Antonio in 2000. In 2014, Rocket and four others founded and began the southeastern New Mexico chapter.

Mark and his family recently have been supported by the Guardians of Children for the past six months and say the group has impacted his and his family’s life for the better.

“One of the biggest things they have done is come along side us in a time that is very dark and very bad and given the comfort to our family,” said Mark.

Today, there are about 40 members; all take part in helping families deal with stress and overcoming sexual abuse. The organization also works hand-in-hand with other advocacy groups like Children Advocacy Agencies and Victim Assistance Groups to raise awareness of sexual abuse.
