RightsCon Silicon Valley 2014 Kicks Off!

After months of planning and preparing, we’re ready to kick off RightsCon Silicon Valley 2014, the premier gathering of tech policy leaders, entrepreneurs, and digital rights defenders from around the world. I’m in awe of the amazing lineup of speakers and experts, and we want to make sure you have access to them too!

On Monday, RightsCon participants will spend three days exploring the progress and challenges at the intersection of human rights and new technologies. The discussions will be all about building an internet that puts users at the center, and remains open and free for future generations — and that’s why we’re committed to making sure you can take part in RightsCon, either in-person or online.

Join us at RightsCon from anywhere: Watch our livestream!

RightsCon is dedicated to future-proofing human rights. We’re going to be tackling the most difficult issues of the day, and seeking a path forward. If you can, we want you to join us in person, in San Francisco. But if you can’t make it in person, it doesn’t mean you can’t still be a part of RightsCon!

Things kick off tomorrow (Monday) at 1pm PST. Here are some of the ways you can participate at RightsCon without getting out of your pajamas:

  • Watch the stream online on Youtube, Facebook, or on Google+
  • Follow the conversation with our live blogs and social media updates.
  • Join in via Twitter #rightscon, or @accessnow, or Google+ to comment and ask questions.

RightsCon is the only conference dedicated to helping companies, governments, and civil society address the challenges — and opportunities — of tech and human rights. And it wouldn’t be possible without the support of Access community members like you.
