Event Location: 
555 12th St, Suite 110

Come meet your fellow editors and help improve Wikipedia articles! Wikipedia is one of the most widely used online information sources - don't you think the League's expertise would be of help? Particularly because some of the people signed up for this event want to improve the information on Wikipedia about redistricting and about initiative and referendum.

Don't know how to edit Wikipedia? That's ok, friendly, experienced editors will be here to help!

Everyone is welcome to come edit Wikipedia with us at this event. Women, men, new editors, archivists and librarians who have resources to share about much needed coverage areas in Wikipedia (women's history, Bay Area history & culture, contemporary culture), those who want to learn how to edit or can teach others how, and anyone with an interest having a great time & editing collaboratively are encouraged to attend!

Please visit the Wikipedia event page for more information and to sign up.
