Nonprofit Tweets of the Week – 7/28/23

Stay informed of the week’s notable events and shared resources with this curated list of Nonprofit Tweets of the Week. With Twitter’s rebrand, the Nonprofit Law Blog’s Tweets of the Week series of posts published weekly since 2009 will also look to evolve. Stay tuned …

Notable Events of the Week:

  • “Prosecutors announced additional charges against Donald Trump on Thursday in his alleged hoarding and hiding of classified documents at Mar-a-Lago, accusing the former president and a newly indicted aide of trying to keep security camera footage from being reviewed by investigators and bringing the number of total federal charges against Trump to 40.” Washington Post
  • “A law passed in Israel’s Parliament on Monday to limit the power of the judiciary left the country with something of a cliffhanger, with the real effects of the government’s move likely to remain unclear for weeks or even months. … The opposition fears a slow descent toward authoritarianism, while the government — which rejects those concerns — is waiting to see how disruptive and prolonged the response will be from its critics.” NY Times
  • “This week, the White House announced that it had secured “voluntary commitments” from seven leading A.I. companies to manage the risks posed by artificial intelligence.” NY Times
