Description

Wikipedia is one of the most wide-reaching repositories of shared knowledge yet a 2011 survey found that less than 10% of its contributors identify as female, suggesting an alarming absence of voices. What and how information is shared is skewed by this gender disparity. To help change this, the Jacob Lawrence Gallery is organizing a quarterly series of Edit-a-thons to improve Wikipedia's coverage of queer and womxn artists of color.

Childcare, snacks from local businesses, and editing tutorials will be provided.

All you need to bring is your laptop, power cord, and ideas. No previous Wikipedia experience required! 

Everyone is welcome. Access to UW wifi will be provided for non-UW affiliated participants.

Please RSVP through the Facebook event link above.
