If you’re a Black or brown woman in the US + a student hoping to pursue journalism, tell me about your goals (khushbu@fullerproject.org). I’ll pay for 5 annual memberships for professional journo orgs, i.e. NABJ, NAHJ, AAJA, IRE, ONA. There should be more of us in journalism.

According to @GRM_Global, a case of COVID-19 has been diagnosed at a tent encampment for asylum-seekers in Matamoros. For context, back in May we detailed the efforts taken to try to keep the virus out, something doctors say could "devastate" the camp. https://t.co/Bx3CIov9pp

El Paso County, TX, and the state of Massachusetts each reported 233 new COVID-19 cases today. El Paso has 840,000 people; Massachusetts 6.7 million.

If you're a student whose plans have been disrupted by visa suspensions — including the H1-B — I would love to talk to you for a @TIME story. (Also open to connecting with non-students.) If you're an immigration attorney concerned about your clients, I want to hear from you too.

Yo White ppl really be like, "We don't want to put hiring POC at the forefront of our agenda because we don't want to tokenize them" but hiring poc needs to be a PRIORITY. Also it won't be tokenizing if you're genuinely wanting to invest in them and include their perspectives???

“I’ve worked so hard to get where I’m at, and had the ruling gone differently, had the Supreme Court ruled against DACA, then all my world [would be] gone" Read @Jas_Aguilera https://t.co/hxw1zRDQ5Q

“There will always be attacks on our immigrant community, so we always have to be ready,” a DACA recipient tells @Jas_Aguilera. https://t.co/2rgd2gJzZ1

The Supreme Court has sided with DACA recipients, halting a White House effort to end the program https://t.co/vV9EqdxAve via @Jas_Aguilera

Quoted @CNN

Diego, a giant tortoise whose unstoppable libido was credited with saving his species, has finally retired to an uninhabited island off the coast of Ecuador after decades of service in a breeding program. https://t.co/ygijFV3AZ0

Some good news https://t.co/rfqUdOfwLe

It's so toasty in my apartment that I just flashed back to summers as a kid when my mom would fill up an ice cube tray with coke and freeze it with some toothpicks, and voila, we had paletas.

Colonial newspapers contributed to the perpetuation of slavery. Advertised 250 years ago today: "Public Auction...Two very fine NEGRO BOYS, the one about 15, the other 11 Years of Age. On WEDNESDAY, Some Brimstone, Alspice" (New-York Gazette & Weekly Mercury 6/11/1770) https://t.co/rzaeqyKwLx

I follow this account to remind myself from whence we came…"we" as a nation and "we" as a profession, which printed ads of enslaved human beings for sale. https://t.co/tsosmyIebC

Perhaps I have something of use to add to this conversation of newsroom diversity. I’m a Latino and grew up in an area where 10% of the students are college or career ready at HS grad, per a 2014 study. Today, I’m an editor at @WSJ and the DJ Newswires. Mama’s proud, ok?

"People partying in a pool may live while those protesting police brutality may die...There is no righteous logic here. There is no justice in who can breathe easy and who can’t breathe at all." https://t.co/UObSAqYTIo

1/ For New Yorkers looking to report allegations of unlawful police misconduct somewhere more official than social media, you might find yourself caught in a long and confusing process. So we’re going to walk you through it. https://t.co/FRYEZqDR78

Watchdogs Say Assaults on Journalists Covering Protests Is on a 'Scale That We Have Not Seen Before' via @TIME @Jas_Aguilera https://t.co/MNlL7ejLVw

great piece from @Jas_Aguilera on the ways Minneapolis activists and organizers are contending with the COIVD-19 pandemic https://t.co/HVsSEb76av

"I’m a 77-year-old African-American male...I’ve gotta be concerned [about catching COVID-19], but at the same time there’s the importance of coming out into the streets. We had to do this. If we don’t do it the cops will get away with it again.” https://t.co/rEaYMWyvQQ

Quoted @tanzinavega

If you are a journalist or an editor who is not comfortable with or knowledgeable about race in the US, please sit this one out.

Grateful that @timemagunion gave me the courage yesterday to speak to upper management about the importance of diversity in the newsroom https://t.co/FYsQwIkDEV
