YWCA Utah 16h
Great piece about the often conflicting dynamics around childcare. Access to high quality, affordable childcare continues to be a YWCA Utah policy priority. Many concerns raised here are echoed by providers, educators, & families across Utah.

May not look like much, but these graphs make me want to happy-cry. Shows a young person in JJS custody decreasing their risk of future involvement in the system, developing additional protective factors. This means our system is learning to help, not punish, youth

DYK - this service is available for free “for any child, parent or caregiver with any problem at any time” in Utah. You don’t need to call the cops or emergency responders when your kid feels out of control. 1-833-SAFE-FAM.

Add'l proof that State oversight & intervention was too little, too late, & ultimately too toothless. Sequel closed these 'YRTFs' VOLUNTARILY-- state regulators were limited to stern warnings? Letters? Lack of regulatory powers here has harmed unknowable of kids.

Our youth justice system in UT isn’t perfect. But it’s above and beyond what many other states have, and it’s constantly improving thanks to great folks like Ruth Wilson, Brett Peterson, Eric Tadehara & others at UT Dept of Human Services

Fed agencies digging through our driver license database using facial recognition tech is a massive invasion of privacy. No Utahn has ever agreed to have their photos handed to the feds, and the has never authorized it. This must stop!

Today I opened a bill file requiring relinquishment of all firearms when someone becomes a restricted person. These laws work in curbing gun violence by helping take guns out of the hands of those who should not have them.

ICE agents are using state DMV face scans to hunt down immigrants. This is a huge bait and switch and a massive betrayal of immigrants’ trust - -

Not mentioned here—but just as important as more productivity & better air—is that more flexible work arrangements also benefit women who are balancing work and family responsibilities. (Men too, but women still do most of the caregiving...)

Props to & JJS for what looks like a welcome downward trajectory. Let's be sure they have the resources to keep it up. Or down.

Lessons learned at Roosevelt tax reform town hall. Area economy hasn’t recovered & job losses. Like most rural areas, young people going where the jobs are. Retirement income spread thin. Teachers using their funds to enrich learning experiences.

Question: would suspending a student from your school for 10 days, after that student is caught vaping, make that student no longer addicted to nicotine or less susceptible to peer pressure? Full disclosure, I am not a science person.
