Assisting Families and Individuals Seeking Asylum on the US/Mexican Border
“A change is brought about because ordinary people do extraordinary things.”
-- Barack Obama
In July 2018, Team Brownsville was founded by a small group of like-minded educators to offer Humanitarian Assistance to families and individuals seeking asylum in the United States.
Currently, Team Brownsville organizes the following:
1. Meals at the border serving approximately 1000 people five day a week, with local churches filling in the other 2 days.
2. "Escuelita de la Banqueta" - A sidewalk school, that provides basic instruction in English, math, geography, and other subjects to the children as they wait.
3. Extensive support to asylum seekers at bus terminals
Since 2018, their membership and mission has expanded with the help of volunteers and donors from around the globe.
