International Fact-Checking Network

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

A project to facilitate collaboration between Wikimedians and The International Fact-Checking Community.


In recent years political fact checking organisations have been springing up all over the world, typically functioning with the help of a volunteer community. There's often a lot of spiritual overlap with the local wikimedian community, but usually the two do not know of each other. This project is an attempt to encourage collaboration between the two.
