We are excited for #WikiForHumanRights -- at the office hours and
afterwards community groups throughout the movement have already connected
with us about organizing. This year we are going to focus on the "right to
a healthy environment" and we need your help!

We will also have a content-writing challenge with prizes from April 15 -
May 15 you can learn more about the challenge and sign up for the challenge
We also have developed a draft list of articles to be created or enriched

think about what your community could do to fill the gaps on your wikis

to human rights, climate or environmental justice, communities impacted by
environmental health issues, or similar.
We encourage working on Wikipedia and on sister projects: Commons,
