Nonprofit Tweets of the Week – 6/30/23

Stay informed of the week’s notable events and shared resources with this curated list of Nonprofit Tweets of the Week. UPDATE: Added two additional events noting this morning’s decisions of the money-influenced Supreme Court – 6/30/23.

Notable Events of the Week:

  • “The Supreme Court on Thursday held that admissions programs at Harvard and the University of North Carolina that relied in part on racial considerations violate the Constitution’s guarantee of equal protection, a historic ruling that will force a dramatic change in how the nation’s private and public universities select their students.” Washington Post
  • “The Supreme Court on Friday said President Biden does not have authority for his roughly $400 billion to forgive student loan debt, the latest blow from a Supreme Court that has been dismissive of this administration’s bold claims of power. The vote was 6 to 3 along ideological lines, with Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. writing for the court’s dominant conservatives.” Washington Post
  • “The Supreme Court’s conservative majority ruled in favor of an evangelical Christian graphic artist from Colorado who does not want to create wedding websites for same-sex couples, despite the state’s protective anti-discrimination law.” Washington Post
  • “A fast-moving crisis unfolded in Russia on Saturday as Vladimir Putin faced an apparent insurrection from a former ally, Yevgeniy Prigozhin, and the Russian mercenary fighters he leads. For the moment, things appear to be calming down, as the forces answering to Prigozhin, the Wagner Group chief, have halted their march toward Moscow and turned around.” Washington Post
