AccessNow, a non-governmental organization that defends the digital rights of users at risk around the world, will host the eighth Annual Summit on Human Rights in the Digital Age (RightsCon) in Tunis, the Tunisian capital, from June 11 to 14, 2019.

RightsCon will bring together human rights experts, investors, business leaders, technologists, engineers, activists, and government representatives from around the world who will work to build strategies, create partnerships, and drive large-scale, real-world change in our digital world.

Participants will have to register to get full access to the three days of programming (400+ workshops, talks, roundtables, and skill-building seminars), full complimentary meals (with good food!), beverages, free swag, multiple parties and social events, and much more.

Due to the nature of this conference, in which a high proportion of the people attending are also part of the programming, AccessNow asks that speakers with the means to do so pay for all or a portion of their tickets.

Those interested in attending but are not part of the programme, and are unable to pay the registration fees are advised to send a note to and AccessNow will share discount codes with them as appropriate.

Access Now is a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) organization that relies upon the support, investment, and generosity of a variety of stakeholders in order to carry out its mission.
