CentralNotice/Request/WMNYC Symposium on Wikipedia and COVID-19

WMNYC Symposium on Wikipedia and COVID-19Edit

What is the purpose of the campaign? How will you measure the success of the campaign?Edit

Description - To attract greater attention and participation at the regional Symposium on Wikipedia and COVID-19 in the geography supported by Wikimedia New York City. The COVID-19 pandemic in New York City is currently considered the global epicenter, and this event aims to answer questions the public may have about Wikipedia and Wikimedia's coverage of the pandemic. Four speakers are presenting, all of whom are active contributors to the topic area on Wikimedia projects, but bring different perspectives, backgrounds, and interests. This request is unusual because we are asking for a subnational banner in a particular a US metropolitan area, see March's request at CentralNotice/Request/Women's History Month and Art+Feminism NYC 2020, which indeed had to be cut short because of the coronavirus pandemic.

  •   Support - This is an important event by experienced Wikimedians that will address a timely and important topic. The notice will be limited to "southern NY and northern NJ" so this is an entirely reasonable request in a time when in-real-life events are restricted. - Fuzheado (talk) 20:24, 5 May 2020 (UTC)
