Hello everyone,

I'm happy to share the results of the International Roma Day Edit-a-thon
2021.

On the occasion of International Roma Day, Wikimedia Serbia organized the
second online global edit-a-thon in which Wikipedia volunteers around the
world wrote and improved articles on Roma people and their history and
culture. This year edit-a-thon was supported by Shared Knowledge, GLAM
Macedonia, Wikimedians of Albanian Language User Group, Wikimedia Polska,
Wikimedia España, Wikimedia Community User Group Greece, WikiDonne and
Wikimedia Community User Group Belarus.

The edit-a-thon lasted from April 1 to 8, when the International Roma Day
took place, with some communities extending it until April 11. I am more
than happy to announce that this year we had significantly more
participants and new articles written compared to last year. The
edit-a-thon reached *71 participants from 21 language editions of Wikipedia*.
In total, *236 articles were written, 1 article was improved, 20 Wikidata
items* were created and 1 improved. The biggest contributors were the
editors from the Macedonian, Serbian and Albanian Wikipedia, who enhanced
the visibility of this topic by creating more than 40 new articles per
language. The final results can be viewed on this link
