The day after the 2016 election was the most difficult day to teach.

I mourned with students of color who had family who had been deported, who had been abused by police. They cried, afraid.

Several white students didn't get it.

In 2020, most get it:
From May 15–22, 2020, 398 students responded, for a response rate of 26%, including 325 registered voters who said they would vote in 2020. Over 9 in 10 of the students surveyed took a general education course with no prereqs; they represent all BYU majors & most U.S. states.

As more states move toward reopening and the national picture improves, we revisited some of the reopened states- many of which have seen upward trends in new #COVID19 cases since reopening.

Since reopening 27 days ago, new cases in #Alabama have increased 119%

Hi @UtahGov @GovHerbert why is my state of #Utah going from “orange” to “yellow” when the daily cases are on an opposite trend and today is the highest daily new COVID-19 case count yet? This doesn’t make sense and I’m afraid and confused. This seems reckless.
@anntorrence @robertmarc60 @BWJones do you see any science? Because I don’t.
On the @UtahDepOfHealth @UtahCoronavirus chart, yellow means plateau and orange/red means growth. We went from yellow to orange/red.

On @GovHerbert @UtahGov’s coronavirus restrictions and reopening risk level chart, we just went from orange to yellow.

What am I missing here

Welcome to #Utah, where corruption is rampant, infections daily are up, deaths are increasing, and restrictions are vanishing. The land of the stupid.
The people without power and privilege in Utah aren’t stupid. But the gang at the top sure hecking are.
Folks, THE SCIENCE. Math does not lie.

Congratulations, #Utah, you just created a new legal industry. Lawsuits to prove recklessness, and these Utah businesses will be hit by them. Here come the personal injury coronavirus carpetbagger lawyers who will argue “they knew.” Reckless will be the claim.
Billboards will line Utah freeways like they have along the freeway in Las Vegas. Hashtag InjuredInACasinoBathroom dot law firm dot com.

As we wait for @GovHerbert to begin his briefing with @DrAngelaCDunn, I'm gonna call attention to this story and an announcement we're awaiting:… @fox13 #utpol #Utah #COVID19
.@GovHerbert begins by sporting a new "Utah-specific" face mask.

He thanks Utahns for their cooperation, diligence in following directives to slow the spread of #COVID19. @fox13 #utpol #Utah
Utahns' efforts have kept the health care system from being overwhelmed, @GovHerbert says.

Testing capacity has grown (62 sites now). He says there's need to have more people tested. @fox13 #utpol #Utah #COVID19

UTAH: on our small #Utah town’s NextDoor, I shared my take on @GovHerbert’s “Utah Leads Together Plan” for phased “reopening” of the state, beginning May 1.

* some have asked for the text so I will paste it in this thread. There may be some errors, LMK.
#COVID19 #coronavirus
It’s not how fast can we reopen the economy, it’s how many deaths and whose deaths we are okay with. A plan is one thing, yes I read it, but in both the plan and the public statements of our governor, I am not seeing anything that makes me feel safe.
3/ What they mean when they talk about loosening restrictions and seeing what happens is: people will die.

Widespread testing data and the willingness to do what may not be politically popular or in line with the president is what’s going to make a difference.

@CDCgov, it’s me again. This “report” you released is a flawed mess. If you’re attempting to address #RacialHealthDisparities then why are 12 of 14 states you cherry-picked ranked between 15-46th in terms of Black Population percentage. #TheLies…
Instead of analyzing outcomes from #DC, #Mississippi or #Louisiana, all with >30% Black population, you chose to pad the numbers and present #Utah, #Oregon, and #Iowa... all <3% Black population. We. See. You.
Remember the #HealthCareSystem May discriminate but #COVID19 does not Image

At a recent town hall event in #Utah, @SenMikeLee tries to explain a major immigration bill, S.386, to his constituents. He has refused a public hearing on the bill, & continues to misrepresent the FACTS about what this bill does. #NoS386
We have debunked a lot of Sen. Lee’s false talking points stated in this video, on this thread:
Why is Sen. Mike Lee pushing bill S.386 so hard & adamant of passing it without any hearings? Follow the money:
