This submission has been accepted for WikiConference North America 2021.


Caribbean Digital Human Rights Community Workspace & Edit-A-Thon


Global & Local, Relationship Building & Support, Inclusion & Diversity, Depth & Breadth for Newer Editors

Type of session:



The session will focus on enabling Caribbean civil society organizations with the tools to continue their work in advocacy through novel means, like Wikipedia. The session's aim is to, at the end, equip new or unfamiliar audiences with the means to manage the task of explaining more complex and polarizing phenomena on Wikipedia, while maintaining modalities as MoS, NPOV, etc. This session will help to support future learnings within the pool of concerned CSOs on information salience within the Caribbean and tell of the mediating effect that greater ease-of-access through Wikipedia would obtain.
