University of Maryland Disability Awareness Month Wikipedia Edit-a-thon

Join us to kick off the University of Maryland’s Disability Awareness Month events with a Wikipedia edit-a-thon. During this event, we will edit and expand Wikipedia articles related to disability. By contributing to Wikipedia, we can help to ensure that its well-trafficked resources provide comprehensive and accurate representations of disability.

New to editing Wikipedia? Don't worry - training will be provided.

Laptops are required. Please bring your own. Wikimedia DC has two laptops to loan. Reserve one by emailing

This event is free and open to the public. Registration is required.
