Representation matters. Not just on screens and pages, but in the information and data we share. Started in 2020, this annual event series invites you to celebrate Black History Month by learning to edit Wikipedia or Wikidata. Anyone can make a difference by helping to improve coverage of Black histories, with a focus on Toronto and Canada.
This event is part of a larger Wikipedia and Wikidata editing campaign coordinated by Toronto Metropolitan University Libraries, Toronto Public Library, University of Toronto Libraries, and York University Libraries.

Disability justice and equity is integral to racial justice. Racialized people are disproportionally affected by COVID-19 deaths and complications from Long COVID. Masks are strongly recommended for this event and will be provided for participants.
This is a drop-in event. Optional training is offered at the start of the sessions for Wikipedia. No experience with Wikipedia or Wikidata necessary.
