Improve public access to information
Strengthen public support for First Amendment rights and freedoms
Broaden public understanding of the role of the media
Promote accurate and fair journalism in Hawaii
In a world striving for media accountability and freedom of the press, Media Council Hawaii (MCH), formerly named Honolulu Community Media Council, has stood as a touchstone for more than 44 years.
