RightsCon is the world's leading event on human rights in the digital age.

Originally called the Silicon Valley Human Rights Conference, RightsCon rotated between San Francisco and another global city. Now, RightsCon is an annual event that rotates its location each year to new host cities around the world that are power centers for technology and human rights. In 2019, we hosted RightsCon in Tunis, Tunisia, and we look forward to gathering in San José, Costa Rica, in 2020.
