The National Archives and the Law Library of Congress are hosting a Wikipedia edit-a-thon for the proposed amendments to the U.S. Constitution at the National Archives Innovation Hub on Friday, July 29 from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.
The edit-a-thon is part of the Amending America initiative at the National Archives, which celebrates the 225th anniversary of the Bill of Rights with an exhibit and a series of National Conversations on Rights and Justice.
There are a variety of great resources that people can draw from for the event. The National Archives published the dataset of more than 11,000 proposed constitutional amendments to data.gov while A Century of Lawmaking For a New Nation contains U.S. Congressional Documents and Debates from 1777-1973. There are also many items that you can search and find in Congress.gov.
Interested in joining the edit-a-thon in-person or online? Please visit the Wikipedia page for more information and to register as either an on-site or remote attendee. You don’t need to have any previous experience editing Wikipedia; we’ll teach you everything you need to know. We’d love to have you!
