RightsCon is the world’s leading summit on human rights in the digital age

In 2011, Access Now hosted the first-ever RightsCon (then the Silicon Valley Human Rights Conference). We met with the intention to create something different: a civil society-led space where all stakeholders – from tech companies to government representatives to human rights defenders – could come together to build a rights-respecting digital future. Since then, RightsCon has rotated between five continents and grown, both in size and in scope to meet the evolving needs of a movement.

Save the date for our 12th summit, taking place in Costa Rica and online from June 5-9, 2023.
