BRIDGING GAPS & BUILDING CONTENT ON WIKIPEDIA

Dalit knowledge and history is too often marginalized or missing from narratives of South Asian history and its diaspora Equality Labs and Project Mukti in collaboration with Whose Knowledge? organized a series of edit-a-thons - starting in April 2017 - to improve Wikipedia’s coverage of Dalit people, events and issues, to share the contributions to history from Dalit Bahujan communities around the world. Like every great story, it all started with a worklist! This is an effort to visualize the outcomes of Dalit community's journey with Dalit History Month: from mapping the knowledge gap with the worklist to bridging the identified gaps with content.
