Stay informed of the week’s notable events and shared resources with this curated list of Nonprofit Tweets of the Week. We hope all of you have some opportunity to be thankful on the holiday weekend and share your gratitude with loved ones and others.
Notable Events of the Week:
- “Negotiators from nearly 200 countries concluded two weeks of talks early Sunday in which their main achievement was agreeing to establish a fund that would help poor, vulnerable countries cope with climate disasters made worse by the pollution spewed by wealthy nations that is dangerously heating the planet.” NY Times
- “A shooting at an LGBTQ club killed five people and injured 18 others overnight, police said early Sunday. Club Q, where police said the first call came in minutes before midnight, described it as a “hate attack.” Authorities said that they would seek murder charges for the suspect, a 22-year-old man, and that they were investigating whether the attack was a hate crime.” Washington Post
- “The Walmart supervisor who authorities say fatally shot six colleagues in Chesapeake, Va., before taking his own life had a note in his phone that railed against people he perceived to have harassed or betrayed him and hinted at what was to come. … Bing had purchased the gun used in the attack that very morning ….” Washington Post
