Following along with the 10th anniversary of RightsCon
Starting tomorrow, June 7, we are welcoming over 8500 participants from 150 countries to engage with our largest program to date in the 10th anniversary edition of RightsCon. Across five days, we will host over 500 sessions that cut across 16 program tracks and 10 intersectional themes from racial justice to disability rights and migration.
Registration ahead of the summit is an important step in our approach to convening safe, productive, and inclusive spaces at RightsCon. If you missed the registration deadline or are not able to participate in the full week of programming, no worries!
There are many options available for you to view recordings of sessions, engage with members of the RightsCon community on socials, share resources, and tap into the momentum of the summit.
