Join us to increase representation of environmental issues on Wikipedia! Surrounded by material from our exhibition, A Visual History of Climate Justice, we’ll kick off this event at 6pm with some snacks, followed by a presentation at 6:30 on anti-nuclear organizing. Yuko Tonohira will share about her experience with the post-Fukushima antinuclear movement and anti-uranium struggles with indigenous peoples, and the relationship between this work and the climate movement.
Stick around to join local Wikipedians and Interference Archive volunteers to improve coverage of these issues and other climate justice themes. Participants will have the opportunity to work directly with archival materials in the Interference collection as source material for editing.
No experience editing Wikipedia is required but please bring a laptop! Experienced Wikipedians will be around to help out, and we’ll be starting the edit-a-thon around 7pm with a brief tutorial to cover the basics. Check out our Wikipedia meetup page for more info. Refreshments will be provided. Contact us with questions at email@example.com.
Yuko Tonohira is an illustrator and organizer who works with antinuclear struggle and local migrant defense projects.
