Social Media Feedback Poll With the current issues with Twitter (i.e. lack of content moderation (Wired, Politico), increased harassment (New York Times), etc.) we want to hear from the PCA community about your feelings about the PCA staying or leaving Twitter and what you think about other social media options. We have also already expanded our social media platforms to include Facebook and LinkedIn.
Core Network Participant Group Meeting The PCA Core Network Participants (CNP) met in September 2022 to brainstorm and discuss future plans for the PCA. It was wonderful to meet people in person for the first time!

STANFORD LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT “The Plant Cell Atlas operates predominantly out of the Carnegie Institution for Science's Plant Biology Department located at Stanford University. Stanford sits on the ancestral land of the Muwekma Ohlone Tribe. This land was and continues to be of great importance to the Ohlone people. Consistent with our values of community and inclusion, we have a responsibility to acknowledge, honor, and make visible the University’s relationship to Native peoples.”
