Nonprofit Tweets of the Week – 5/1/15

Street protest

The past week was highlighted by protests in Baltimore, valid criticisms of the media characterization of the situation, and a devastating earthquake in Nepal. And the Council on Foundations Annual Meeting in our hometown of San Francisco (Erin was there).
