In September, Civil Beat launched a partnership with The Huffington Post, creating HuffPost Hawaii.

There are many benefits to this partnership. From the national exposure to the work of our award-winning editorial teams — the collaboration presents local and national business opportunities.

The partnership allows Civil Beat to bring our content to a wider audience and we are changing our regularly priced subscription to $9.99 a month.  

This rate reflects our continuing commitment to bring quality journalism to new audiences, while also adding new voices to the already robust conversations we see on

For those who have supported Civil Beat for the past three years, mahalo. For our new subscribers, welcome and thank you for the opportunity.

How much do you value our journalism?

Civil Beat focuses exclusively on the kind of journalism most at risk of disappearing – in-depth, investigative and enterprise coverage of important local issues. While producing this type of journalism isn’t cheap, you won’t find our content hidden behind a paywall. We also never worry about upsetting advertisers – because we don’t allow any. As a nonprofit newsroom, we rely on donations from readers like you to help keep our stories free and accessible to everyone. If you value our journalism, show us with your support.
