To close out Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, Kundiman hosted a second Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon in conjunction with Wikimedia NYC and The Ace Hotel. On Sunday, May 27th, we gathered in the boardroom of The Ace Hotel to create and edit articles on Asian American literature.
In this four-hour event, participants added 11,700 words to Wikipedia, making 397 total edits. We created 9 new articles and edited 61 existing ones. It was an exceptional day for Wikipedia editing, and we're so thankful to everyone who showed up! Check out some photos of the event on Facebook here.
In our first Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon, we edited almost 10,000 words. We're excited to announce that during the month of May, participants helped us add over 20,000 words about Asian American literature to Wikipedia! Thanks so much to everyone who helped us make this tangible, valuable change. Find more Wikimedia NYC events here!
