To support and enable fair and unbiased media representation of disability-related issues, through the development of news and original content

To provide community-wide education on disability-related issues so as to reduce the instances of discrimination suffered by persons with a disability

To establish an online community that encourages greater interaction between disabled and able-bodied people
