"Making A Difference, One Child At A Time"

Our guests are bikers dedicated to protecting the victims of child abuse. They are  GUARDIANS OF THE CHILDREN,  a humanitarian service that provides protection and works with  prevention following the motto:"Don't Let Your Silence Drown Out Their Cries".

Physical, emotional and sexual child abuse is a crime that usually remains silent. In New Mexico, 9,412 children are victims of abuse, based on substantiated investigations, according to "360 Report.  Children, Youth and Families Department Protective Services. State Fiscal Year 2014".

Protection of abused children is a gigantic task that bikers of the Rio Grande Chapter are taking in their hands. Guardians Of The Children, a non profit organization founded in 2006 in San Antonio TX, is spreading this community service throughout the country (involving 36 states) and Canada. Listen here what guides their hearts:
