Nonprofit Tweets of the Week – 7/29/22

Stay informed of the week’s notable events and shared resources with this curated list of Nonprofit Tweets of the Week.

Notable Events of the Week:

  • “With a long-elusive spending deal newly in hand, Senate Democrats set about finalizing their economic package Thursday, hoping they might be able to deliver on a central piece of President Biden’s agenda as soon as next week. The new, urgent push toward a vote came a day after the party achieved what once felt like an impossible breakthrough: an agreement between Senate Majority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Joe Manchin III (D-W.Va.) on a bill that would lower health care costs, combat climate change, reduce the deficit and revise the U.S. tax code.” Washington Post
  • “The World Health Organization has declared monkeypox a global health emergency, as the once-rare virus spreads rapidly in Europe and other parts of the globe.” Washington Post
  • “The move by the Justice Department to bring two top aides to former Vice President Mike Pence in front of a federal grand jury is the most aggressive public step taken yet by prosecutors investigating the plots to subvert the 2020 election. It signals that the Department’s probe has reached inside former President Donald Trump’s White House and that investigators are looking at conduct directly related to Trump’s and his closest allies’ efforts to overturn his election defeat.” CNN
