Fed Up With Trump's Muslim/Refugee Ban? Donate To These Organizations

Let your dollars do the talking by giving to the ACLU, Doctors Without Borders, and others.

The opposition to President Trump’s executive order, which bans refugees and citizens coming in from seven majority-muslim nations, is picking up steam.

Some people are hitting the streets and airports in protest, others are using their money to make a difference.

While the ban is going into effect, a federal judge did block deportations in emergency rulings on Trump's immigration order. Other teams of lawyers are trying their hardest to reverse the ban including ones from the American Civil Liberties Union. Other organizations are doing their part in order to help out.
