Campaign: Sports Wiki Visibility Project

Our mission is to host a campaign to document the history and contributions of women, non-binary, intersex, trans, disabled, and people of color in sports on wikipedia. Across these groups, there has been lower inclusion and lower representation of these individuals in sports, in the media, and in the ways we record our history. In addition to lack of inclusion in the representation of individuals from these groups, there is also less representation from these groups in the creation and development of content. To address both of these concerns, this wiki-thon will provide women, non-binary, intersex, trans, disabled, and people of color with the tools and knowledge to develop, edit, and contribute to Wikipedia pages. The effort will also encourage participants of all backgrounds to build the visibility and document the stories of the contributions of women, non-binary, intersex, trans, disabled, and people of color to sports.
