The Filipinas of HamOnt welcomes everyone to its first Edit-A-Thon! Within its broader mandate of educating and connecting the community, we will be editing and creating pages on Wikipedia to highlight Philippine-Canadian women, femme-identified, and gender diverse folks, collectives, and organizations and events (i.e. protests, demonstrations) that have made significant contributions to Canadian history, in the areas of political, community, and public representation, the advancement of women’s rights, and gender equity.

Timed to start on the Philippines’ Araw ng Kasarinlan (Independence Day) on June 12, 2021, this Edit-A-Thon calls on the broader Philippine-Canadian community’s participation as we recognize our trailblazers and changemakers, and continue the work they have done for us.
