Dear friends

On October 25th and 26th, Access will be hosting the Silicon Valley Human
Rights Conference <> in San Francisco. The main
focus of the conference is to examine and explore how the high-tech industry
can better plan for and manage the emerging human rights implications of
their technologies. The event is designed as an exchange of experiences,
learnings and best practices between tech companies, grassroots activists,
technologists, civil society organizations, academics and governments.

We've set aside *10 complimentary tickets* for the event specifically for
members of the Liberation Technology community. If interested,
register here<>using the discount
