Google created a $2 million crisis fund that can be matched with up to $2 million in employee donations, USA Today reported Monday.
The fund will go toward four organizations: the American Civil Liberties Union, Immigrant Legal Resource Center, International Rescue Committee, and the UN High Commissioner for Refugees. It's the company's largest crisis fund to date. Google CEO Sundar Pichai condemned President Trump's travel ban, and co-founder Sergey Brin joined a protest at San Francisco International Airport.
Pichai sent a memo to all Google staff condemning the order.
Brin said he joined protests because "I'm a refugee."
Others tech leaders have harshly criticized the move.

Uber has come under fire by some users who think its criticism didn't go far enough. CEO Travis Kalanick promised to give money to its drivers stranded overseas, but did not condemn the ban specifically. Many users vowed to #DeleteUber when its drivers broke a strike by New York taxis to JFK Airport.
