|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.
|description = Did you know that Wikipedia is an openly editable resource, meaning that anyone can improve the quality and accuracy of Wikipedia entries? Data has shown that less than 18% of biographies on English-language Wikipedia are about women. Help to change that by joining us on January 14 for the Women's Suffrage Centennial Wikipedia Editing Workshop. Attendees will learn how to edit Wikipedia and work together to improve and create Wikipedia articles related women's suffrage in the United States.

|title = '''Virtual Event''' - From Field to Lab: Writing Wikipedia Histories of the USDA's Women
 
|time = Time: 11 AM – 3 PM
 
|place = National Agricultural Library
 
|address = Via Webex
 
 
|description = Join us online via a virtual meeting room to celebrate Galentine's Day the right way by writing Wikipedia articles about women, past and present who have worked for the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Agricultural Research Service, National Agricultural Library and other services falling under the umbrella of the USDA.
 
 
On Friday, February 14th, we will be writing articles about USDA's Women in Red. You can join us at any time from 11-3 and from anywhere - a virtual meeting room invite will be sent out a couple days prior to the event to those who register. Feel free to sign in and edit at any time on the 14th for our edit-a-thon (even outside of our time frame) - as long as you sign in on the event page (directions for signing in are on the event page itself)before you start editing we will be able to track our engagement and impact. We will have an Ethernet Pad set up so folks signing in can share who they're working on, and so we can ensure that we're not creating multiple drafts for the same folks. You will also be able to use it for questions and assistance.
 
 
NAL's Wikipedian-in-Residence, Jamie Flood, and Ariel Cetrone of Wikimedia DC and will be set up in the National Agricultural Library's Multi-Purpose Room to edit, answer questions, and offer assistance to those taking part. If you're on site, please join us for camaraderie, coffee, cookies, and Galentines!

|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.
|description = Join us and take part in the annual international campaign to improve coverage of women, art, and feminism on Wikipedia. Beginners are welcome! Wikipedia training will be provided. Connect with the museum and the movement on Twitter: #atSAAM #ArtandFeminism #NowEditingAF

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.
Hosted at the Smithsonian American Art Museum (SAAM), and organized by SAAM, American Art Library, and Wikimedia DC.

|description = The World Health Organization has named vaccine hesitancy, or anti-vaccination, as one of the top ten threats to global health in 2019. At the same time, the spread of health-related misinformation has fueled concerns about the potential dangers or inefficacy of vaccines.
|description = Join us for a fully remote Wikipedia editing training session. Learn about Wikipedia's policies and the basics of editing.
 
 
This workshop will take place on Zoom. Attendees will receive a dedicated link to Zoom prior to the workshop. If you don't already have a Wikipedia username, please create one before proceeding to Zoom.

Wikipedia is an important resource for up-to-date, accurate vaccine information, and it is currently one of the most frequently visited sites for healthcare information worldwide. NewsQ’s KNoW Science initiative has partnered with the WHO’s Vaccine Safety Net and Wikimedia DC to help expand Wikipedia’s existing vaccine-related content.
This workshop is presented by Wikimedia DC, the DC region's official Wikipedia affiliate.
 
   
  +
As a part of these efforts KNoW Science and Wikimedia DC are organizing a Wikipedia edit-a-thon to evaluate and improve Wikimedia content about vaccines, including vaccine safety.
Wikimedia DC will continue to offer remote workshops over the course of the next few weeks. Like our regular in-person events, these may be themed or presented in conjunction with area museums, agencies, institutions, and organizations.
 
   
  +
The event will be open to anyone interested in promoting accurate vaccine information online. Training will be provided -- so no experience is necessary to join the event!
Please contact us if you are interested in hosting a remote training session for your staff or constituents.

|address = 950 Independence Ave SW, Washington, DC 90560
 
   
|description = In 2015, the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art conducted an assessment of its collection and ascertained that only 11% of the named artists in its collection self-identified as women. As part of its Women’s Initiative, this number has been increased to 22%. But did you know that only 18% of articles on English-language Wikipedia are about women? Help to change that by joining us for the National Museum of African Art’s African Women Artists Wikipedia Edit-a-thon. We will work together to increase the presence of African women artists on Wikipedia by improving existing articles and creating new ones. This event includes a curator-led tour of the exhibition, I Am… Contemporary Women Artists of Africa.
 
 
No Wikipedia editing experience is necessary. Editing training will be provided by Wikimedia DC. Museum curators and librarians will be on-hand to provide expertise and source material.
 
 
Laptops are required. Please bring your own. Wikimedia DC has two laptops to loan. Please send your laptop request to info@wikimediadc.org.
 
 
Lunch will be provided.
 
 
This free event is presented as part of the Art+Feminism DC2020 campaign.

|description = The World Health Organization has named vaccine hesitancy, or anti-vaccination, as one of the top ten threats to global health in 2019. At the same time, the spread of health-related misinformation has fuelled concerns about the potential dangers or inefficacy of vaccines.

Wikipedia is an important resource for up-to-date, accurate vaccine information, and it is currently one of the most frequently visited sites for healthcare information worldwide. Malayalam Wikimedians are now conducting a month-long edit-a-thon to expand Malayalam Wikipedia’s vaccine-related content. The partners in this initiative are NewsQ’s KNoW Science initiative, WHO’s Vaccine Safety Net, Wikimedia DC and Centre for Internet and Society.
|description = The National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C., will participate in Art+Feminism 2020 with the goal of improving representation of women and female-identifying artists on Wikipedia as well as training more women to be editors. The focus of our efforts will be women sculptors.

|description = The stories of Black women in food can educate and embolden future generations, but only if their legacies are discoverable. On July 27 from 1:00-3:30 p.m. Eastern, join us for a Wikipedia edit-a-thon that will address the marginalization and omission of Black women’s stories by creating or adding to Wikipedia articles about their personal histories and inspiring careers in food businesses, culinary education, writing, advocacy, philanthropy, and beyond.
   
  +
Don’t know how to edit Wikipedia articles? No worries, we’ll train you during the event! With these new skills, you’ll be able to help us better represent and share the stories of women like LaDeva Davis (featured above) who had her own program on PBS in 1976 called, “What’s Cooking?” During the show, she prepared budget-friendly, highly nutritious meals that appealed to wide audiences. So popular was her show that PBS broadcast it in over 100 locations across the country, making Davis one of the first Black women to have her own nationally syndicated public TV cooking show on PBS.
|description = Join us for a fully remote Wikipedia editing training session. Learn about Wikipedia's policies and the basics of editing.

Honoring her role in food TV history, the museum included Davis’ image on the “TV Chefs Wall” in the FOOD: Transforming the American Table exhibition.

|description = A healthy democracy requires that the public can reference a complete, trustworthy, and accessible historical record of events related to government activity and interactions between government officials and the people from whom they derive their authority. Beyond equipping people with the tools to better understand how various economic, social, and cultural dynamics influence our democratic infrastructure, history also provides clarity about various players within our political landscape and the impact they have had.
   
  +
The period between 2017 and 2021 was tumultuous, and recent enough that its documentation on Wikipedia is incomplete. Given Wikipedia’s importance as one of the rare places where the American public can meet to both write and read a shared reality, Protect Democracy and Wikimedia DC are organizing a series of Edit-a-Thons centered on civic engagement and historical documentation. By recording the notable impact actors have had on the U.S.’s democracy and making it easily accessible, you can help empower the public with information of important past events, creating both a recognition of positive influence and accountability for misdeeds.
|description = NMWA will host its first all-virtual Art+Feminism edit-a-thon focused on improving Wikipedia entries related to notable women artists and art world figures. We will work to enrich the representation of all women artists, with an emphasis on women of African descent whose work is included in NMWA's collection.
 
   
  +
This first event of our series will focus on instances of actors misleading and obstructing the courts and Congress. During this Edit-a-Thon, training as well as suggested sources will be provided so that attendees of all experience levels—both in terms of Wikipedia editing and U.S. democracy—can participate.
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.
 
   
  +
|info-link =
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.
