WikiBlind Wikimedians is a new volunteer group in which our members, blind, low vision and sighted, can connect with each, and discover the options we most enjoy for participating in the open knowledge movement.

Our group of volunteers started forming as a Facebook group called WikiBlind, starting on 24 April 2019. If you are on Facebook, please come join our group! WikiBlind group on Facebook

Everyone is welcome to join in the adventures, all ages, abilities and cultures. We strive to be radically welcoming and inclusive, and want to identify and overcome the barriers that stop people from being able to participate in this wild wiki world!

On May 15, we submitted our first Rapid Grant proposal to Wikimedia and would welcome your review, comments and endorsements. If you are interested in learning how you might be able to qualify for your own funding from the Wikimedia Foundation, please take a look at WMF Rapid Grants and message us to learn more.

We are also now set up as @wikiBlind on Twitter and we are looking for tweeters!
