維基媒體基金會知識平權基金是維基媒體基金會於2020年設立,價值450萬美元的新基金,旨在為外部組織提供贈款,以解決阻礙獲取和參與自由知識的種族不平等問題,支持知識平權。

該試點計劃植根於我們的維基媒體策略方向——「知識平權」於 2017年出現,是我們實現2030年策略願景的兩大重點支柱之一。「知識平權」指出了我們不能實現免費知識——如果當中存在了社會或經濟障礙,阻止某些人分享和貢獻知識的能力。有了這個重點基金,我們將投資於致力解決世界各地種族偏見和不平等問題的組織——目標是為自由知識創造一個更具包容性和代表性的未來。

歷史

2020年6月,美國(the United States)的喬治·弗洛伊德(George Floyd)遇害事件引發了全球60多個國家對種族不公的抗議。在這些持續的全球抗議之後,維基媒體基金會做出了幾項的明確承諾,作為基金會通過增加支持和投資來推進種族正義——這是我們維基媒體運動對知識平權的更大承諾的一部分。作為這些承諾的一部分,知識平權基金於2020年底創建,其重點是解決世界各地黑人、原住民和有色人種社群面臨的自由知識障礙。

知識平權是自由知識工作和我們維基媒體運動的核心。為了邀請被權力和特權結構排除在外的知識和社群,我們必須打破阻礙所有人參與所有知識的障礙。

我們決定關注種族公平,因為這是一個普遍存在的問題,並與知識平權的工作密不可分。許多阻止人們獲取和貢獻自由知識的障礙都源於種族壓迫制度。 由於殖民和奴隸制,來自世界各地黑人,原住民和有色人種社群的知識被系統地排除在歷史經典之外,並被抹去。

與此同時,我們認識到這是我們作為維基媒體運動無法單獨完成的工作——例如 ,當邊緣化社群的學術和大眾媒體代表仍然不足時,我們的項目只能有限度進行,這限制了我們用來建立的引文和主要來源。知識平權基金旨在向我們運動之外的組織提供贈款——這將使我們能夠建立一個強大的自由知識合作夥伴生態系統,致力於解決知識平權的障礙。該基金是一個試點項目,我們將繼續迭代基金的結構和目標。

我們所說的種族平等是什麼意思

維基媒體基金會將種族平等定義為擺脫以歐洲為中心,白人-男性-帝國主義-父權制——至上,優越,權力和特權的轉變,以創造一個具有包容性並反映全球有色人種社群經驗的環境。以上提到的這些特權模式在世界範圍內設定了主要的社會,政治,法律,政策導向和文化規範。

種族平等意味著承認白人和擁有與膚色相關的特權之群體,是通過制度權力,支配地位和控制,系統地創造出來的顯性和隱性行動。

種族平等旨在促進對非白人,非美國和歐洲中心社群,以及因種族主義和基於種族或種姓遭受傷害的社群進行一致和持續的修復。

種族平等包括真實的和多層的——種族,民族和/或有色人種的人口統計代表,促進來自基於膚色而受壓迫社群的人士的持續和一致參與。

補充資源

知識平權基金委員會

知識平權基金委員會將確定接受知識平權基金贈款的組織,並與之合作。該委員會將由維基媒體基金會員工和志願者組成。目前知識平權基金委員會成員包括:

  • Emna Mizouni, 社群成員(Emnamizouni)
  • Felix Nartey, 高級項目主任, 活動,維基媒體基金會 (FNartey (WMF))
  • Tony Sebro, 副總法律顧問,維基媒體基金會(TSebro (WMF))
  • Jorge Vargas, 區域合作高級經理,維基媒體基金會 (JVargas (WMF))

我們還有兩位維基媒體基金會和維基媒體運動領導人,他們目前擔任知識平權基金委員會的顧問。在我們啟動知識平權基金時,這些顧問分享他們在知識平權和贈款方面的專業知識。

  • Janeen Uzzell, 前任首席運營官,維基媒體基金會
  • Lisa Gruwell, 首席推進官,維基媒體基金會

Based on community feedback, we will be expanding the Equity Fund Committee to include three more community members who are interested in contributing and participating. The Committee will increase from its current seven members to ten members (5 Foundation staff, 5 volunteers). Each Committee member will be asked to make a one-year commitment to supporting the Equity Fund and evaluating future grantees. Current Committee members will begin reaching out to invite interested people to join the Committee, and we will share more about these new Committee members soon.

社群參與

知識平權基金的當前結構側重於維基媒體基金會的支持。該基金最初是為了快速響應於2020年發生在世界各地有關黑人性命的抗議活動。我們創建了一個試點計劃,目標是快速有效地提供支持贈款。由於我們一直在處理創建新型基金的運營和後勤問題,因此知識平權基金的實際時間表變慢了。在我們啟動知識平權基金時,委員會中有兩名社群成員。我們的目標是讓更多社群成員參與這個試點項目,我們將向更多人開放,讓他們參與未來的資助。目前,我們正在尋求推薦符合知識平權基金資助資格,並可能成為有影響力的合作夥伴組織。 如果您有任何推薦,請詳細填寫 [$link1此表單](由Google管理)。

We welcome recommendations and suggestions for Round 2 grantees through an intake form available on Google survey and LimeSurvey. We’ll be taking suggestions through February 18. Thank you to those that have already submitted recommendations: we have received over 15 suggestions so far that we will evaluate as part of the second round. We will post the full list of suggestions on Meta after the submission timeframe closes in February. Round 2 grantees will receive funding by June 2022.

資助領域

Potential grantees must meet the following criteria: They must be a recognized nonprofit, as the Equity Fund can not give grants to for-profit commercial entities or individuals. They must have a proven track record of impact. We are looking to learn from established organizations with a proven track record, and are not able to support organizations which are still determining how to assess their impact.

知識平權基金委員會選擇了五個重點領域——我們將重點投資這些領域。這些領域中的每一個都解決了阻礙公平獲取和參與知識的持久結構障礙之一。

  1. 支持專注於自由知識和種族平等的補助金和倡議
  2. 支持專注於世界各地有色人種的媒體和新聞工作,以擴大覆蓋這些社群的可靠媒體資源
  3. 解決互聯網接入不平等的問題
  4. 提高阻礙知識獲取的數碼素養技能
  5. 投資於非傳統的知識記錄(即口述歷史)

Equity Fund grants are a one-time financial grant for a one- or two-year term, so grantees must be able to sustain themselves beyond this grant. It is not intended to provide a source of ongoing funding.

捐贈接受者

第一輪贈款接受者將由知識平權基金委員根據對他們現有計劃工作的評估,以及它如何在自由知識的背景下促進種族平等來選擇,而且他們必須滿足特定標準——例如成為公認的非營利組織,建立經過驗證的表現記錄,以及擁有不依賴於維基媒體基金會贈款的財務模型。選定的贈款接受者也將接受審查,以確保遵守我們的基金管理人的非營利義務。

我們希望在7月底前公佈第一輪資助接受者,並將更新此頁面,以提供有關接受者的詳細信息。

  • Arab Reporters for Investigative Journalism (US$250,000): The Arab Reporters in Journalism (ARIJ) is a nonprofit investigative journalism organization based in Jordan. ARIJ has built an expansive network of journalists across the Middle East and North Africa and has supported over 650 investigative projects on topics ranging from threats to freedom of expression, to systemic patterns of bias and discrimination. This grant will support ARIJ’s continued work in training and coaching media on how to report on issues of equity and institutional accountability, with dedicated workshops that tackle the skills, tools, and knowledge required for Arab journalists to address racial inequity in the region. Through their work, ARIJ will continue to grow the breadth of investigative journalism about inequity throughout the Arab World based on journalistic principles of facts, research, and multiple sources.
  • Borealis Racial Equity in Journalism Fund (US$250,000): Borealis is a philanthropic intermediary that takes a community-led approach to addressing injustices and driving transformative change across the United States. This grant will be provided to their Racial Equity in Journalism Fund, which invests in local news organizations led by people of color that have built long-standing relationships and trust with the diverse communities they serve. With this investment, Borealis will invest in local community-based journalism with a focus on improving how communities of color are represented and reported on throughout the media. Through this work, they will increase the amount of citable articles about leaders of color and community issues and further knowledge equity.
  • Howard University and the Institute of Intellectual Property and Social Justice: The Institute of Intellectual Property and Social Justice (US$260,000) (IIPSJ) is a nonprofit organization that was established to promote social justice in the field of intellectual property law. IIPSJ is led by professors from and graduates of the Howard University School of Law (HUSL), the oldest historically black college or university law school in the United States and a leading institution in civil rights and social justice advocacy. IIPSJ advocates for equity and inclusion throughout the intellectual property (IP) ecosystem, including shaping IP law, policies, and initiatives to promote awareness of IP protections and possibilities among communities of color. With this grant, IIPSJ will create a two-year fellowship at HUSL led by a Wikimedia Race and Knowledge Equity Fellow to explore how systemic racism and injustice impacts how marginalized communities can participate in free knowledge (including in the intellectual property ecosystem), recommendations to address these gaps in knowledge, and how knowledge can be used to advance racial equity and empowerment.
  • InternetLab (US$200,000): InternetLab is a nonprofit think tank focused on internet policy and research around critical digital issues of inclusivity and equal rights, based in São Paulo, Brazil. With this grant, InternetLab will create a two-year fellowship led by a Wikimedia Race and Knowledge Equity Fellow that will produce scholarly writings and publications, as well as educational programming on the intersection between racial equity and free knowledge in Brazil. The Fellow will conduct research on topics including what barriers impact the participation of Black and Indigenous peoples in online knowledge, and identify national and local policy solutions across the fields of intellectual property, access to technologies, education and research, affirmative action, funding and incentives, among others. This fellowship will expand the available research about how racial inequity has impacted communities of color in Brazil.
  • Media Foundation for West Africa (UShttps://www.mfwa.org/50,000): The Media Foundation for West Africa (MFWA) is a non-governmental organization dedicated to protecting and defending the right to freedom of expression, particularly for media and human rights defenders, throughout the 16 countries in West Africa. This grant will support the MFWA’s continued work to protect the public’s right to access information and advocacy for equitable policies throughout the region. MFWA will promote investigative journalism on issues of equity and injustice as part of their focus on freedom of expression and access to information. The grant will also support the organization’s press freedom and independent journalism advocacy to help build a favorable and enabling environment for in-depth investigative reporting that encourages transparency and accountability — the lack of which often result in injustices and marginalisation of the poor, underrepresented, and minority groups.
  • The SeRCH Foundation, Inc. (US$250,000): The STEM en Route to Change Foundation (SeRCH Foundation) is a non-profit organization based in the United States that focuses on the intersection of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) as a tool for social justice. This grant will be used to support their flagship program, #VanguardSTEM, which asserts the value of non-traditional knowledge alongside technical expertise and uses storytelling as a means of cultural production to amplify the contributions of Black, Indigenous, women of color and non-binary people of color in STEM fields. With this investment, #VanguardSTEM will grow their collection of featured BIPOC STEM creatives, adding multimedia to each profile to enhance the storytelling capacity. This collection of open and freely licensed audio, video, and written content about women and non-binary innovators and inventors of color will expand the repository of rich content in the Commons centering the experiences and expertise people of color in STEM and support non-traditional methods of storytelling.

Moving forward, the Equity Fund will provide one more round of grants in the Wikimedia Foundation’s fiscal year, likely in early 2022. Our plan is to select these grantees among ideas from the Wikimedia movement, and welcome recommendations through this form.
