Starbucks, Google, & Airbnb Announce Support for Refugees Amid Trump's Immigration Ban

Starbucks, Google, and Airbnb are just some of the many companies that have stepped up to announce support for refugees following President Trump‘s immigration ban, which many have referred to as the “Muslim Ban.”

Howard Schultz, the CEO of Starbucks, announced that the company will hire 10,000 refugees over the next five years. The new employees will be hired around the world in 75 countries and the initial focus will be on refugees who served as interpreters or support for U.S. military.

Google has announced that the company will create a $2 million fund to support for organizations: the ACLU, the UNHCR, Immigrant Legal Resource Center, and International Rescue Committee. The company will also match employee donations, up to $2 million, totaling a $4 million donation.

Airbnb is stepping up by providing free housing to refugees and anyone not allowed in the US.

Lyft has already announced a $1 million donation to the ACLU, which won the ride sharing company a ton of praise after the #DeleteUber campaign started.

A massive amount of donations have been sent to the American Civil Liberties Union this weekend, with more than $24 million raised so far!
