Hello all, and apologies for crossposting!
I hope you are doing well!
As you may have noticed when we announced the partnership in August : the Wikimedia
Foundation is working with the UN Human Rights to help expand the availability of
knowledge about human rights online.
As one of our first collaborations, we are going to be running a campaign from November
15 - January 30 to add and improve knowledge about human rights on Wikipedia and the
Wikimedia projects. The initial focus of the campaign will be on improving articles about
topics related to the UN Declaration of Human Rights and youth standing up for human
rights. More information about the campaign is also available here:
We would like to invite you to get involved in the campaign in one of several ways:
Help us build the list!
We need your help identifying more topics related to youth involved in human rights that
don’t have articles on Wikipedia or could use further improvement. We would like to
represent many different languages and geographies in the campaign. To propose topics for
the list, see instructions at:
Organize an online or offline event!
We need your help finding community leaders from throughout the Wikimedia to:
Host an online campaign on your language Wikipedia! To learn more about hosting a local
topical campaign see the kit here:
Hold an in person editathon with local human rights organizations or partners! To learn
more, check out the kit here:
Promote the campaign starting Dec. 10 for International Human Rights Day!
Help us amplify your efforts around the campaign and publicize it to wide audiences.
We’ll be sharing a communications toolkit (including graphics) soon with suggestions on
reaching out to folks about the campaign.
Reach out to local media and supporters: Journalists and the public can help add momentum
to the campaign through storytelling and spreading the word.
Promote the campaign on social media: We’ll be using #WikiForHumanRights to promote the
campaign on social media, when we increase the communication to the public on 10 December
If you want to help in other ways, let us know on the discuss space #human-rights tag
or by emailing Alex Stinson <astinson(a)wikimedia.org
<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org> and Luisina Ferrante <educacion(a)wikimedia.org.ar
If you are interested, let us know by indicating your interest to organize in the
Organize sections linked above!
Note: We are still updating the communications assets for the campaign! To watch for
those materials, add https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/WikiForHumanRights/Share
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/WikiForHumanRights/Share> to your meta watchlist.
If you have questions, we are going to be hosting an office hour next Tuesday
or you can ask questions on the discuss space #human-rights tag
Looking forward to your engagement with the campaign!
