  4. Standing Tall Together

    Tragedy struck outside of the Brownsville, Texas, Bishop Enrique San Pedro Ozanam Center on Sunday, May 7, 2023, when a driver struck several migrants waiting near a bus stop. Ultimately, ten people were injured, and eight people lost their lives, including 18-year-old Jose Javier Cario-Moreno. ProBAR responded by supporting victims and their loved ones, including Jose Javier’s family.

    In this piece, we share reflections and words of gratitude from Jose Javier’s father, Mr. Cario-Mijares, about ProBAR’s role during this challenging period.
