Reproductive Justice Wikipedia Edit-athon

With more than 49 million articles in 280 languages, Wikipedia holds the promise of democratizing knowledge through its growing community of volunteer editors. However, the vast majority of editors identify as white males, which limits the topics covered and the critical perspectives represented. This may be particularly evident in the lack of adequate information on abortion and reproductive justice, especially at the state and local level. With Roe v. Wade overturned, people need accessible resources on abortion policy where they live. Join us to build those resources.
