Access Now is excited to invite you to RightsCon Tunis 2019, the eighth event of the RightsCon Summit Series. As the world’s leading event on human rights in the digital age, we bring together business leaders, policy makers, general counsels, government representatives, technologists, and human rights defenders from around the world to tackle some of the most pressing issues at the intersection of human rights and digital technology. This is a space for breaking down silos, creating partnerships, and driving large-scale, real-world change toward a more free, open, and connected world.

Our 2019 Closing Ceremonies will feature dynamic talks with some of the leading voices in our global community. We'll close out RightsCon Tunis in style, while shining a spotlight on the solutions that are driving change for people around the world, both online and off.
