Crowdfunding startup speeds U.S. launch thanks to Trump travel ban

Widespread opposition to U.S. President Donald Trump's immigration curbs has proved a boon for CrowdJustice, a startup that helps individuals and organizations raise money online to fund legal cases. "We moved our U.S. launch so that we could go live right after the immigration executive order was announced to give a platform to raise money and support and increase public awareness for legal cases," Chief Executive Office Julia Salasky said in an interview on Thursday. Its first U.S. case is aimed at raising funds to help Tareq and Ammar Aziz, two Yemeni brothers who were deported to Ethiopia after arriving at Dulles International Airport in Virginia on Jan. 28, hours after Trump had signed the order.
