Movement Strategy/Recommendations/Iteration 2/Advocacy

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

There are 10 draft recommendations by the Advocacy Working Group:

  1. Transparency: A global network of Wikimedia advocates is built on community driven rules of engagement. Processes for decision making are known and comprehensible. There are established entry points for those who want to be involved or want to initiate advocacy activities
  2. Diversity: Community actively seeks and provides a good environment and tailored pathways that attracts more people from a variety and diversity of languages and cultural backgrounds to engage in advocacy for Wikimedia on a local or global level
  3. Global conversation: There is an established communication process for community advocates to have central conversations about advocacy
  4. Knowledge management: There is constant knowledge management about methods, cases, success stories, and failures for all advocates to access and learn from, processed and maintained by, with and for them
  5. Advocacy Hub: Movement advocacy efforts are streamlined and reinforced by a hub run with and for current and future advocates
  6. Common positioning: The advocacy priorities of the Wikimedia movement are clearly articulated through a shared, highly visible and living document
  7. Partnerships: Advocates for the Wikimedia movement are able to collaborate with and build upon an existing global network of partners working on aligned advocacy issues
  8. Empowerment of advocates: Advocacy is recognized and encouraged as a valid pathway in the Wikimedia Movement
  9. Self-Determination: Subsidiary decentralisation should be a model of collaboration for advocacy across the movement
  10. Protection of Advocates: Advocates have access to clearly defined and accessible safety measures enabling them to work without having their personal and communal security compromised
