     Your participation is appreciated, and meaningful, as we work to develop Wikipedia pages about people, events, and ideas often overlooked but truly important to West Virginia and the rest of the region.

     Our Edit-a-thon is focused on amplifying the stories and figures of under-represented Appalachian artists, writers, and other creators, particularly womxn, people of color, and LGBTQ individuals.
