|description = Join us for a virtual Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon that helps to highlight more artists and stories like those featured in the Smithsonian American Art Museum's landmark exhibition ¡Printing the Revolution! The Rise and Impact of Chicano Graphics, 1965 to Now. The exhibition brings together five decades of innovative printmaking by Chicano artists to explore the social justice-rooted artistic tradition and its contemporary legacy. Many of the featured artists came of age during the civil rights era and channeled the period's social activism into assertive aesthetic statements that announced a new political and cultural consciousness among people of Mexican descent in the United States. Learn how to edit and create new Wikipedia articles in this online editing workshop and work to amplify and expand on articles about Chicanx women and LGBTQ+ artists. All levels of technological proficiency welcome.

This event is part of a global initiative to help right Wikipedia’s gender imbalance. In 2019, at least 4,360 Art+Feminism participants created or enhanced over 31,500 Wikipedia pages.

No experience necessary—just be ready with your computer, a motivation to combat gender bias, and a belief in equal access to quality information resources. People of all gender identities and expressions are invited to participate.

|description = Welcome to the fourth annual WikiGap Campaign! Join us in celebrating International Women's Day, by working for concrete change: editing and creating Wikipedia articles, and making women more visible online.
 +
 
 +
We will kick off the WikiGap Challenge, give the floor to experts on gender policies and rights, learn how to edit Wikipedia – or for those of you who already know, spend the time with making some concrete action.
 +
 
 +
The event will take place via Zoom. Everyone who has registered will receive a Zoom link after registration closes. The initial parts will be livestreamed on Wikimedia Sverige social media platforms, but the following editathon will be restricted to pre-registered users.
 +
 
 +
Program
 +
 
 +

|description = The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), enacted by Congress in 2011, is a comprehensive update of federal food safety laws. It addresses preventable foodborne illness, monitors the global food supply chain, and ensures human and animal food safety. Rather than a system that responds to foodborne illness, FSMA works to prevent it. Following its enactment, the FDA created seven comprehensive new regulations to enforce the law. These regulations touch on nearly every aspect of the food supply chain.
 +
 
 +
We will start the day with remarks from Paul Wester, Director of the National Agricultural Library, and follow with a panel of guests who will speak about the history, context, and future of FSMA. Following the speakers, we will hold a training session for those new to - or need a refresher on - Wikipedia editing. A worklist of FSMA topics and pages will be provided, including growing, harvesting, packing, and holding of produce; mandatory controls for food facilities; and monitoring and corrective action of intentional adulteration of food.
 +
 
 +
To close the day, we will hold a question and answer session.
 +
 
 +
This event is presented by the National Agricultural Library with support from Wikimedia DC.
