Since 2011, we have convened the human rights and technology community in key hubs around the world, including Tunis, Toronto, Brussels, Rio de Janeiro, Manila, and San Francisco.

As the second iteration of an online-only summit, RightsCon 2021 established a critical platform for thousands of experts to connect, coordinate, and advance a shared agenda and for the decade ahead. We welcomed almost 10.000 participants, meaning that RightsCon 2021 was not only the largest, but the most accessible iteration of our summit to date. The 10th Anniversary of RightsCon was held from Monday, June 7 to Friday, June 11, 2021.
