A reproductive justice organization in San Antonio , Sueños Sin Fronteras de Tejas works to increase positive health and healing outcomes for undocumented birthing and pregnant people of color in South Texas through community-powered mutual aid, education, and advocacy.

The group provides humanitarian assistance for asylum seekers who find themselves in Brownsville, Texas and those who are waiting in the Mexican cities of Matamoros and Reynosa. These are primarily people from Latin America, but recently Team Brownsville has been welcoming many individuals and families from Ukraine. Founded in July 2018 by a small group of like-minded educator volunteers, their membership and mission has expanded with the help of volunteers and donors from around the globe. Planned Parenthood South Texas volunteers and employees have assisted the group by helping them at the Plaza Bus Station where they welcome asylum seekers. PPST has also helped them with 500 period packs and a monetary donation.
