As part of stem cell awareness month the Stem Cell Network (SCN) has launched a new social media and outreach campaign using the hashtag #WeAreStemCells and the message: An investment in stem cell research is an investment in the future. This is our science. It’s Canada’s time! ! Their goal is to express to Canada’s Ministers of Science and Finance that our scientific community is outstanding and now is the time to provide stable and predictable funding for the Stem Cell Network.

The success of this campaign depends on you – the more voices, the better!  You can participate by taking part in the SCN #WeAreStemCells social media campaign by retweeting posts or recording a personal video using the message highlighted above. Don’t forget to use the campaign hashtag and add the handles @KirstyDuncanMP and @Bill_Morneau to your posts. We would also encourage you to share your message on all of your social media platforms (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn) and tag SCN. In addition, SCN would ask that you sign an electronic petition which can be accessed at petition. This petition will be shared with the Minister of Science later this fall.
