Local capacity development for advocacy

Providing for Safety and Inclusion involves developing skills in advocating for legal improvements. For example, many communities suffer from legal challenges or limitations around free licenses in their home countries. There needs to be support in building capacity for communities to advocate for legal policies that enable the Wikimedia Projects to thrive.



Join or start a discussion on Meta or the "Provide for Safety and Inclusion" space of the Movement Strategy Forum.


Apply for a Movement Strategy implementation grant to create a project that advances this initiative.
