Global Advocacy

Giving Free Knowledge a Voice


Global Advocacy directly supports the Movement’s core mission: People cannot freely share in the sum of all knowledge without policies, laws, and regulations that protect their right to do so. The team advocates for policy goals that promote free knowledge globally. Alongside volunteers from Wikimedia Chapters around the world, we engage with governments, civil society, and other stakeholders to protect the free knowledge movement, promote the distribution of freely-licensed content, and expand the public’s ability to participate in knowledge creation.

Topics we're working on right now include:

Resources to stay updated[edit]

  • Public Policy Mailing List (Open discussion list in which anyone can post about relevant policy/advocacy topics, and where the Public Policy Team will announce work and solicit feedback.)
  • Diff: Policy and Advocacy (Where we share Policy & Advocacy updates or opportunities with the community, including quarterly public policy round-ups of all policy actions.)
  • Medium, Wikimedia Policy (Long-form thought pieces, policy analyses, and updates on advocacy actions.)
  • Twitter, @WikimediaPolicy (Follow for shared speaking events, blogs and articles, advocacy actions, campaign activities, and to engage with the work of our allies and chapters.)
  • Website, Advocacy (The Global Advocacy page on the Wikimedia Foundation Website. Where you can find an overview of our work, key resources, and staff information.)
