Front and Center is dedicated to providing a harassment-free space for all members. We do not tolerate any form of harassment, including racial microaggressions and colorism, sustained disruption, deliberate intimidation, stalking, screen-recording/photography without consent, and unwanted sexual attention. Participants violating these rules will be removed from Front and Center and associated groups at the discretion of organizers and may be barred from participating in Front and Center events.
Our goals are for Black, Indigenous, & Latine Plant Scientists to be seen, heard, belong, and have agency within the plant science community.
