Our Campaigns

We collaborate with community organizers, technologists, activists, academics, researchers, artists, libraries, archives, museums, and others around the world to center and share marginalized communities’ knowledge online.

Some things we’re working on now…

#VisibleWikiWomen

Wikipedia is still missing so many images of notable women. Let’s add their faces to Wikimedia projects so that those who have been invisible can be fully seen this March! Wikimedians and allies around the world, in partnership with Whose Knowledge?, are hosting a challenge to add more images of women to Wikipedia throughout March 2018. Together, we can make notable women, who are often literally invisible online because they’re missing an image, more visible both on Wikipedia and the broader internet. Learn more

 

 

 

 

Wikipedia’s Knowledge Gaps

We’re piloting resources and methods for centering the knowledge and expertise of marginalized communities in Wikipedia’s online knowledge repository. In partnership with Whose Knowledge?, pilot communities – including Dalits from India and the US, queer feminists from Bosnia and Herzegovena, and Kumeyaay Native Americans – have led the way in mapping their own knowledge to find critical gaps in Wikipedia, and then creating and improving related content to fill those gaps. Community organizers speak powerfully about their truth and experiences working with the Wikimedia movement.  Learn more
