I hope this email finds you well.
After the success of the first Write for the Rights event in Tunis where we focused on
sexual rights, for the next upcoming 4 days, my dear friends Sophie and Lea and I are
organizing a Write for the rights event in Marseille that will focus on enriching the
Wikipedia content related to the right to migration and movement. This event is targetting
refugees, migrants, asylum seekers and sex workers in France, where we will train them on
editing with their native languages. The event got officially integrated as one of the
main activities of the United Nations's World refugee day in Marseille.
The event will be also a way to present Wikimedia's movement and the activism it has
as we're participating in the different activities of the 5+5 summit organized by the
french president's office.
This is an invitation for all of you to write with us and translate some of the articles
that you can find here. Your contribution will be very important for the project as the
majority of the community that is directly touched by the topic (the migrants in french),
come mainly from African countries. So you writing in your own languages about, will help
this vulnerable community get easier and better access to such important information.
Also, the 5+5 summit is basically a summit of 5 countries from the northern side of the
mediterranian and 5 from the southern one (so african countries).
More details about the project can be found in its french page, but the first 2 links in
the mail are in english.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to me for any question or suggestion.
Have a nice day.
