Amplify Environmental Justice: A Citizen Science Wikipedia Edit-a-thon!

Celebrate Citizen Science Month with Binghamton University Libraries, Broome County Public Library, and the Binghamton University Student Chapter of Zero Hour! Join us for a Wikipedia Edit-a-thon focused on adding much needed edits to environmental justice-related pages, with a particular emphasis on amplifying BIPOC leaders and efforts in environmental and climate justice movements. This event will provide training on how to edit Wikipedia pages and add in references in a relaxed Zoom environment.

Make a warm and cozy drink, prepare a comfy space, and drop into this virtual Edit-a-thon to engage in some thoughtful editing! Instruction, tutorials, and relaxing background music will be provided.

Join us on April 1st between 6-8pm at: https://binghamton.zoom.us/j/96552719086.

To prepare for editing on Wikipedia before the event, follow the directions at http://bit.ly/CitSci21 to make a Wikipedia account and sign up on the event dashboard. 

We look forward to working with you to improve environmental justice articles on Wikipedia!
