Defending and Promoting the Freedoms of Speech and Press
First Amendment editorial and commercial freedom is a key pillar of the magazine media industry that strengthens the relationship between publisher and subscriber and connects readers to the publications they trust and value most.
Toward this end, MPA closely monitors developments in all areas of media law – in the courts and in federal and state legislatures – and participates in litigation and other advocacy efforts to defend the rights of its members and their advertisers. Additionally, MPA works closely with social media platforms to ensure journalistic protections for our members.
