Bringing the Human Rights Summit to You

We’re excited! Tomorrow is our inaugural Human Rights Summit, a packed two-day event that will gather policymakers, international civil society activists, and military and business leaders to discuss pressing issues that need U.S. global leadership on human rights.

For those who may not be at the Summit in Washington, D.C., we want to bring the Summit to you.

Here’s how:

  • Live Streaming. We will webcast the entire Summit, December 4 and 5 from 8:30am to 6pm EST. Watch it live.
  • Live Blogging. We will provide you with highlights from the event and insights on pressing issues via our live blog.
  • Live Tweeting. Join the conversation on Twitter. We will be live tweeting the event. Follow us @humanrights1st and send us questions and comments using the hashtag, #HRFSUMMIT.

Sessions during the two-day Summit will cover human rights issues including the Arab Spring, emerging technologies, immigration reform, and more.

Senator Richard Durbin (D – IL) and John McCain (R-AZ), Chairman of the United Civil Front Garry Kasparov, President of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission Dr. Richard Land, and Vice President of Communications and Public Policy at Facebook Elliot Schrage, and many others will join us as guest speakers. See the full agenda.

We hope to see your comments online!
