Ride hailing company Lyft has taken a strong stance against Trump’s new immigration ban on Muslim refugees.

Lyft is pledging to donate $1 million to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) in response to the president’s immigration ban.

In a blog post and an email sent to costumers , Lyft said in one of the strongest statements:

This weekend, Trump closed the country’s borders to refugees, immigrants, and even documented residents from around the world based on their country of origin. Banning people of a particular faith or creed, race or identity, sexuality or ethnicity, from entering the U.S. is antithetical to both Lyft’s and our nation’s core values. We stand firmly against these actions, and will not be silent on issues that threaten the values of our community.

The Lyft Co-Founders also announced it will be donating $1 million to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) over the next four years.

We know this directly impacts many of our community members, their families, and friends. We stand with you, and are donating $1,000,000 over the next four years to the ACLU to defend our constitution. We ask that you continue to be there for each other – and together, continue proving the power of community.

John & Logan
Lyft Co-Founders
