We are so PUMPED to be back at House Judiciary committee to hear HB23-1187 Alternative Sentencing for Pregnant People #copolitics

HB23-1187 will ensure that #pregnant people have the opportunity to #alternative sentencing 🔥

@S2SSisters @elephant_circle
We know that pregnancy is contraindicated towards a #healthy pregnancy & being incarcerated while pregnant is harmful to both the pregnant person and the child - #reproductivejustice is what we are fighting for today #copolitics @elephant_circle @S2SSisters
Correctional facilities are not mandated to track or report pregnancy-related data & most facilities do not have any routine process for collecting such information - another reason why we are saying YES on HB23-1187 #copolitics #leadership #reproductivehealth

I'm at the courthouse in #ColoradoSprings for the preliminary hearing of the alleged #ClubQ shooter. The suspect is charged with more than 300 counts, and the hearing is scheduled for three days.

I'll thread updates here throughout the day.

The shooting happened at the LGBTQ bar days before Thanksgiving. Five people were killed and more than a dozen injured.

The hearing is scheduled to start at 8:30.

Affidavit breakdown:…
If you're wondering what a preliminary hearing is, it's when prosecutors must prove to the judge there's enough evidence for a trial.

Rich Fierro and his family just arrived. Wyatt Kent, who was in a relationship with Daniel Aston, is here too.…

If you aren't tuning in yet to @VigilForHD16 introducing a phenomenal bill at #colorado #legislativesession ✨HB23-1101 - Ozone Season Transit Grant Program Flexibility ✨ #CleanAir #publictransit #ClimateJustice is important

@baconforco discusses the bill as well - who represents D7, and how much transit has mattered to #students #youngpeople and #workingparents and how much #CleanAir matters to her constituents #copolitics

Follow the bill!🔥
@VigilForHD16 gives us a lesson on group level o-zone - "which is a combination of heat and toxins, and they mostly come from oil and gas operations - and then transportation is the next big one" #copolitics

Fantastic point Rep. #ClimateJustice

The #startup world's dirty not-so-secret: most startups fail. Startups are risky and so investors place bets on lots of startups and fold the ones that don't show promise, which sucks for the company employees, but also for the users who depend on the company's products. 1/ The staring eye of HAL9000 from 2001: A Space Odyssey.

This mornings rant is dedicated to all the folks doing #community designed policy. I see MANY ppl talk about this in #copolitics & very FEW tangibly do it successfully.

Join me in yesterdays presentation to @DePaulU students & some good local examples - a 🧵
Whether it’s small p or big P #policy how we design initiatives, how we write bills, how we engage testifiers, how we build coalitions & organize - can perpetuate inequities we’re trying to disrupt. #copilitics

We’ve got incredible #leaders that stray away from white supremacy cultural characteristics in advocacy & lead with #integrity

2022 #Midterms Simulation: #ArtoftheGerrymander

A Republican House win will be built on gerrymanders (TX/GA/FL/TN/LA, etc.)

To illustrate the need for fair maps, I'm calculating the results using the 2022 votes, but if every state had a Democratic gerrymander. #ElectionTwitter ImageImageImageImage

I’ll apply the difference in Presidential margin to the House result. Thanks @davesredist @mikemathieu @vest_team + @DKElections @PoliticsWolf

Keen to see how my maps perform over the decade; tried to comply with state law if partisan intent were allowed to stand.
#ArtoftheGerrymander: #Alabama
Trump 62.0% - Biden 36.6%
Real delegation: 6R-1D
Gerrymandered: 5R-2D

Hello! I’m Sáde Cromratie Clemons. My work involves Eco-hydrology and fluvial geomorphology. I study tree response to flooding and how that affects carbon transport and storage. #Colorado #hydrology #gueSTAAR Image
When floods happen, big pieces of trees can be moved into or near a stream, causing a jam of wood pieces. Wood jams are pretty neat because they can store carbon. Since floods create wood jams, flooding affects how carbon is transported through forests and rivers. Image
Wow! That's a crazy logjam! But where did the wood come from? That’s what I try to figure out by looking at tree rings and isotope values. Last fall and spring, I took samples from a logjam near a stream and samples from hillslope trees in the same area for reference. Prof. Holly Barnard and Sád...

Researching candidates for #Election2022 with a simple strategy: I won't vote for anyone who has cashed a dime of Big Pharma donations and/or ignored pleas for help from the #VaccineInjured like my elected officials @RepJoeNeguse, Sen @MichaelBennet, and @GovofCO. #VoteThemOut 🧵
I lean left on some issues and right on others so I've always been independent. I'm a one-issue voter now, and Democrats have by and large been hypocritical & abysmal in acknowledging #VaccineInjuries, censoring us instead. My elected officials in #Colorado have left me for dead. Image
That doesn't mean I'm voting straight Republican either. Just because one party sucks doesn't mean the other is the right answer. They BOTH often put special interests before the best interests of the people. Do your research.

Day #5 of the #BannonTrial is set to begin shortly in the E. Barrett Perryman US District Courthouse in Washington, D.C. Prosecutors and defense make final arguments and the case then goes to the jury. That's the plan. #BannonTrial
Thursday's proceedings concluded with Judge Carl Nichols recessing to chambers to craft final jury instructions and ponder the defense's motion to dismiss the case. He will not rule on the motion until after the verdict. #BannonTrial
In response to Nichols' final jury instructions, which were emailed to all parties last night, Bannon's attorneys have filed a 10-page notice of objection. #BannonTrial…

Führt die #Legalisierung von #Cannabis zu einem signifikanten Anstieg im Konsum bei Jugendlichen (<18)?

Die klare Antwort: NEIN!

Ist das belegt?
Antwort: JA!

In #COLORADO (CO), wo 2012 legalisiert wurde.
Hier die im Folgenden relevanten Grafiken. Im Einzelnen:
1/x ImageImageImage
Die Kernaussage ist und bleibt:
Es kommt zu keinem Anstieg - aber auch zu keinem signifikanten Fall im Konsum - selbst USA-weit ist das so zu bestätigen.

Was genau in CO zum Knick seit 2019 geführt hat, kann ich nicht sagen. Vielleicht sind Jugendliche verantwortlicher?

2/x Image
In der Gesetzgebung zur Legalisierung in CO (=Colorado) wurde festgelegt, dass die Steuereinnahmen aus der Legalisierung in Bildung zu stecken sind.
Allerdings ist damit Bildung ganz allgemein gemeint und nicht zwingend Aufklärung oder Prävention.
