Hello all, and apologies for crossposting!

I hope you are doing well!

As you may have noticed when we announced the partnership in August [1]:
the Wikimedia Foundation is working with the UN Human Rights to help expand
the availability of knowledge about human rights online.

As one of our first collaborations, we are going to be running a campaign
from November 15 - January 30 to add and improve knowledge about human
rights on Wikipedia and the Wikimedia projects. The initial focus of the
campaign will be on improving articles about topics related to the UN
Declaration of Human Rights and youth standing up for human rights.  More
information about the campaign is also available here:

We would like to invite you to get involved in the campaign in one of
several ways:

Help us build the list!


   We need your help identifying more topics related to youth involved in
   human rights that don’t have articles on Wikipedia or could use further
   improvement. We would like to represent many different languages and
   geographies in the campaign. To propose topics for the list, see
   instructions at:

Organize an online or offline event!

We need your help finding community leaders from throughout the Wikimedia


   Host an online campaign on your language Wikipedia! To learn more about
   hosting a local topical campaign see the kit here:

   Hold an in person editathon with local human rights organizations or
   partners! To learn more, check out the kit here:

Promote the campaign starting Dec. 10 for International Human Rights Day!

Help us amplify your efforts around the campaign and publicize it to wide
audiences. We’ll be sharing a communications toolkit (including graphics)
soon with suggestions on reaching out to folks about the campaign.


      Reach out to local media and supporters: Journalists and the public
      can help add momentum to the campaign through storytelling and spreading
      the word.

      Promote the campaign on social media: We’ll be using
      #WikiForHumanRights to promote the campaign on social media, when we
      increase the communication to the public on 10 December

If you want to help in other ways, let us know on the discuss space
#human-rights tag
or by emailing Alex Stinson <astin...@wikimedia.org and Luisina Ferrante <

If you are interested, let us know by indicating your interest to organize
in the Organize sections linked above!

Note: We are still updating the communications assets for the campaign! To
watch for those materials, add

Have questions?

If you have questions, we are going to be hosting an office hour next
or you can ask questions on the discuss space #human-rights tag

Looking forward to your engagement with the campaign!
