Wikipedia is one of the most widely-used resources in the world for general information. 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 September!

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. Whether you’re a seasoned Wikipedian, an APA studies scholar, or completely new to all of this, your help is needed! We hope you’ll join us in the wiki-magic!

 

Possible articles to work on: Wikipedia | Tumblr
