Empower. Organize. Equip.

BPSOS is a refugee-run organization that defends persecuted communities and helps the disenfranchised achieve liberty and dignity.

From Victims to Champions

In the 1980s, BPSOS operated voluntary missions to protect Vietnamese boat people, rescuing them from the high seas and defending their refugee rights in first-asylum countries.

Over the past decades, we have expanded our services to aid immigrants, refugees, victims of trafficking, disadvantaged communities, and survivors of violence in the United States and overseas.
