Event description

Description

Did you know that Wikipedia is an openly editable resource, meaning that anyone can improve the quality and accuracy of Wikipedia entries? Data has shown that less than 18% of biographies on English-language Wikipedia are about women. Help us change that by joining us on April 13 at the Belmont-Paul Women's Equality National Monument for a Wikipedia editing workshop. We will work together to improve and create Wikipedia content about black women who fought for the right to vote. Training will be provided, and no prior knowledge of suffrage history or Wikipedia editing is required.

This free event is presented by the Belmont-Paul Women's Equality National Monument and the National Parks Service with support from the National Woman's Party and Wikimedia DC. Lunch will be provided.

Please bring your own laptop. Wikimedia DC has two laptops to loan, and they can reserved by emailing info@wikimediadc.org.
