ACLU raises $24 million after suit against Trump's travel ban: Report

Source: CNBC/USA Today

The American Civil Liberties Union has raised $24 million since Saturday morning and added more than 150,000 new members, according to media reports.

"What we've seen is an unprecedented public reaction to the challenges of the Trump administration," Anthony Romero, executive director of ACLU, told Yahoo News.

USA Today reported late Sunday that the ACLU had received more than 350,000 online donations totaling $24 million since Saturday morning. The non-profit organization typically raises about $4 million online in a year, according to the newspaper who cited Romero.

The ACLU and other activist groups filed a class action lawsuit Saturday to challenge President Donald Trump's late Friday executive order that restricted travel to the U.S. for citizens of seven countries linked to terrorism.

7. I used to belong to the ACLU, but when I was forced into early retirement

our income was significantly less than we had been expecting, my membership was one of the things that we decided to let go. But we have decided that come our next SS check, we will be reactivating that membership. Some things are too important to let go!

8. I feel your pain

I have always given over the years to many good organizations, Sierra Club, Sea Sheperds, Greenpeace, etc. ACLU was the first org I joined way back in the mid '70s and when we retired we did the same thing, had to cut back and the ACLU is the only current org we maintain. They saved my job back then simply by writing a letter stating my case was worthy of a discrimination suit, problem solved. (over the length of my hair of all things, LOL)
