Celebrate the signing of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights
“To claim your rights, you need to know your rights"
by strengthening the factual coverage of human rights on Wikipedia!
International campaigns work best when local communities organize contribution in their local wiki in the way they know how! We need your help building a #WikiForHumanRights event in your local wiki.

Create a page on your local wiki for letting people sign up and report their contributions. We recommend including:
The campaign is focused on the Core Topic list and Youth Topic Lists. However, if your community wants to create Human Rights topics in general please do! If you let people add their own topics, collect that list of topics on the event page.
|Let us know by reporting your event by adding it to the On Wiki Table of Events. Please try to fill out as many fields as possible.|
|Create a Programs and Events Reporting Page
Create a Programs and Events Dashboard event as part of the WikiForHumanRights Campaign. Make sure to pick an "Article Scoped Program".
To track contributions to the list of topics follow the following instructions:
The Programs and Events dashboard will now track all edits to pages that are part of the Wikidata driven list for the event.

Working with Activists on Sensitive Topics
Human rights topics can be complicated to work on: they are both complex to write about and participants in events or activities may have strong emotional connections with the topics.
Wikimedia Argentina has been running events in several countries with activists working in Human Rights fields. They have developed a set of recommendations to keep in mind for your event:
Privacy and Safety
Working in Human Rights it's also important to pay attention to the safety of participants. Activist participants may be taking risks by being public. If you are concerned about safety at your event and want to learn more, we recommend taking this training and using the resources available on Commons.
