Wikimedia DC reaches out to people and organizations in the greater Washington, D.C. area. We hold events, including training sessions and edit-a-thons, where experienced Wikipedians and newcomers alike have the opportunity to network and learn from each other's experiences. We also work with institutions share their knowledge with the rest of the world through Wikipedia, the world's most widely visited not-for-profit website. We are an all-volunteer organization.
