A number of celebrities, including Sia, Rosie O’Donnell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Jack Antonoff, have pledged to donate to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).
The donations were in response to President Donald Trump’s executive order that temporarily blocks people from Muslim-majority countries and Syrian refugees from entering the U.S.
Sia pledged to donate $100,000 to help “our queer and immigrant friends” and O’Donnell promised to match Sia’s donation.
