For a decade now, BIIN has served the Brazos Valley:  promoting the human dignity and well-being of all immigrants in our community, by offering classes and programs that meet a variety of needs, advocating for and facilitating access to legal, educational and social services. With the rise of anti-immigrant language and policies and the pandemic’s impact on widening existing disparities, BIIN’s work is even more vital than ever!

Ultimately, it comes down to this:  What kind of world do you want to live in?

One where only some people’s lives matter, or 

one where every human being is valued and treated with dignity?

At BIIN, we believe that immigrants make vital contributions to our community as workers, entrepreneurs, taxpayers, consumers, parents, neighbors, new citizens and more.  

We believe that everyone deserves to benefit from educational opportunities, decent housing, affordable healthcare, fair treatment at work, and to live in peace and security with those whom they love.  

For these reasons, BIIN offers a variety of supports and services to immigrants in the Brazos Valley, including citizenship and English classes, the “Allies in Action” program for parents of school-aged children, workshops on legal issues, individualized referrals and assistance in accessing services through the IRA program, and up to date information in Spanish on COVID-19 testing and public health measures through Línea Amiga, social media and frequent collaborations with local media outlets.
