Welcome to the Central Illinois chapter of the Guardians of the Children.
GOC is partnered with children’s advocacy agencies to receive referrals. If it is determined that GOC can benefit a child, we will organize a ride to meet the child and through a ceremony bring the child into our organization.
When needed, Members may attend court with our little friends. The sole purpose for our physical presence is to assist the child in being less intimidated and frightened while testifying against their abuser.
As a body of Bikers, we help empower children to be courageous, even in the face of their ordeals. We stand ready to lend support to our little friends.
GOC Members and Supporters are ordinary people who simply care about children. We are parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles. We enjoy the open road on our iron horses and are here to spread the important message of “No More Child Abuse”. The Members of GOC have taken an oath and will enforce with Valor, Truth and Integrity the Mission of this organization.
GOC is not just one individual force fighting against child abuse. GOC is a brotherhood of motorcycle enthusiasts banded together for the same cause-our children. Our association as bikers gives GOC unique qualifications to protect our children and the ability to call on resources that might not generally be available to the public at large.
Our mission is to send a clear message to all who would abuse children that we are prepared to protect these children through our physical and emotional support. GOC does not condone the use of violence or physical force in any manner. However, if we as a group, or as an individual, must act to prevent the abuse of another child, we will do so.
