WikiAPA Wikipedia ♥ Asian Pacific America
Wikipedia is awesome!!
But even though it’s one of the most widely-used information sources online, there’s always room for improvement, especially when it comes to underrepresented communities.
That’s why the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center is hosting WikiAPA, a series of Wikipedia edit-a-thons!
In cities all throughout the U.S., we’re encouraging people to get together to create and update Wikipedia articles around Asian Pacific American content. We hope you’ll join us in the wiki-magic!
*Wikipedia is an online encyclopedia where articles are created, edited and moderated completely by volunteers in the public. That includes you!
