Wikipedia is the world's largest encyclopedia; however, fair representation of notable, but underrepresented people and topics remains a major concern. In response, the Wikimedia Foundation has supported many grassroots efforts including Women in Red, Art+Feminism, Wiki Loves Pride, Black Lunch Table and AfroCROWD, among others, to improve discovery of these topics.
