Human Rights Policy Survey[edit]

Dear SWAN members, thank you for hosting the GA team in the last SWAN meeting. You can now share your experiences via our survey [1]. If you missed our regional calls, we still want to hear from you!

Your experiences will help us learn how the Foundation can better support individuals. The survey is currently being translated into 10+ other languages. You can find all updates, links, and additional information about the Human Rights Policy community consultations on this Meta page [2].

This survey will be conducted via a third-party service, which may subject it to additional terms. For more information on privacy and data-handling, see the survey privacy statement [3].

Human Rights Policy Community Conversation[edit]

Hello SWAN members! As I mentioned during the 3 April SWAN meeting, the Global Advocacy team has organized a series of regional community conversation events to receive input from community members on the implementation of the Human Rights Policy. I'm excited to let you know that we have scheduled these events, which you can learn more about here. Below is some additional information about these events:

What is the outcome of these sessions? We will do two things with the information that is shared via these conversations and other, smaller focus groups. (1) We will share a summary of our findings by publishing them on Meta, in a Diff blog, and (hopefully!) presenting them at Wikimania. (2) Feedback and recommendations will shape the implementation process of the Human Rights Policy.

Where can you learn more about these calls and the Human Rights Policy? You can learn more about the conversion format, types of questions that will guide the conversation, as well as the Human Rights Policy [here].

What if you can’t join any of these conversations? If you are interested but cannot attend the calls you can still share your experiences via a survey that will soon be available.

Invitation to join the Public Policy monthly call - July 1, 2022[edit]

Dear SWANers, thank you for hosting the Global Advocacy team and also for tolerating my many messages. What can I say, you're very in demand!

We are hosting our first-ever monthly conversation hours later this month and would love to invite members of this group. The call is on July 1 at 16h EST. All information you need to participate is on this Meta page [1].

The agenda is split between a dedicated theme for the month and whatever items you wish to cover. This month we will share some of our work on disinformation. There is no set agenda for the second half of the call - feel free to add your item to the list of topics in the etherpad [2]. Come and talk to us! Ask us anything, or tell us anything, related to public policy and advocacy initiatives for free knowledge online. For example:

  • You want to learn more about our team and our current initiatives
  • You would like to share a policy development or advocacy campaign idea and would like to get feedback or support
  • You have questions about a specific WMF policy priority or development

Hope to see you there... or at the next one!
