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

Originally called the Silicon Valley Human Rights Conference, RightsCon rotated annually between San Francisco and another global city. Now, RightsCon visits new host cities each year that are power centers for technology and human rights. In 2020, we will host our ninth edition of RightsCon in San José, Costa Rica, in 2020.
