The Wikimedia Foundation Communications department has completed the transition of the old Communications committee to the Movement communications group. The members of the original group were invited to rejoin, and more than half have done so. We are now ready to open membership up to new members from across the movement.

The Wikimedia movement communications group is an opportunity for members of the Wikimedia community to discuss topics related to movement communications. Topics of discussion can be raised by any member of the group, including those from the Wikimedia Foundation Communications department. Conversations in the group may range from brainstorming opportunities to advance the movement to chatting about a problem faced by a specific community to coordinating communications efforts on major events.

The Movement communications group is open to anyone in the Wikimedia community working on communications for Wikimedia activities or communities.
