The National Institute against Discrimination, Xenophobia and Racism (INADI) and the non-profit association Wikimedia Argentina signed a cooperation and technical assistance agreement.

The signing took place in the auditorium of INADI, located at 750 Moreno Street, in Buenos Aires, the country's capital. There were presents Maria Jose Lubertino, president of INADI, and Patricio Lorente, president of Wikimedia Argentina, who signed an agreement providing for joint activities to promote and guarantee free access to knowledge; the promotion and dissemination of economic, social, cultural, linguistic and environmental rights and the establishment of strategies to prevent discriminatory practices.

The non-profit association Wikimedia Argentina is a local chapter of Wikimedia Foundation, organization chaired by Jimmy Wales, inventor of the famous Wikipedia virtual encyclopedia, which is today one of the most used resources in the world.

A local chapter is a NGO who shares the goals and mission of the Wikimedia Foundation. Wikimedia Argentina is the first chapter whose main language is Espanol, although this encourages the creation and development of projects in the original languages, guarani, the quechua and the aymara. In this regard, one of INADI's main objectives will be to develop encyclopedias in Aboriginal languages, an indispensable tool for communities whose culture is threatened.
