THE OFFICIAL RIGHTSCON VIDEO

Want a glimpse into what the RightsCon experience is like? Watch the recap video from our community’s three days together in Toronto below. You can explore more moments of RightsCon Toronto in our Flickr Album.

RightsCon is the world’s leading conference on human rights in the digital age, brought to you by Access Now. We bring together business leaders, policy makers, general counsels, government representatives, technologists, and human rights defenders to tackle pressing issues at the intersection of human rights and digital technology. RightsCon is where the global community comes together to break down silos, forge partnerships, and drive large-scale, real-world change toward a more free, open, and connected world. You can learn more about our community, including those who joined us at our most recent summit in Toronto here.
