WikiAPA Asian Pacific America ♥ Wikipedia

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!
