We have elected a new President of the United States – our President – who will represent our country — but who has shown he will not represent the beliefs and values that a majority of the country holds dear — though he will be held accountable to and by all Americans, including those who trusted him with their vote, about making their day-to-day lives better even as many lose their health care, receive fewer government services and benefits, have their family members and friends deported, fear the backlash of greater racial injustice and Islamaphobia, and suffer from the emergence of hatred and misogyny emboldened by his election to our highest office. The nonprofit sector will have much work to do and we’ll need to ensure the charitable giving laws are defended and enhanced with less public resources devoted to basic public goods. On this Veteran’s Day, we give thanks to all who have served this country. Have a listen Bob Dylan‘s Blowin’ in the Wind while perusing our curated nonprofit tweets of the week:
