Staff of Color@JCU Employee Resource Group: Greater Cleveland Urban Film Festival

The first Staff of Color ERG event will be an opportunity to see a series of short films at the Greater Cleveland Urban Film Festival at Shaker Square this Sunday, September 23. One of these films will highlight JCU community partner, Eliza Bryant Village, a nursing home located in the Hough neighborhood.

We will be meeting at Shaker Square Cinemas at 1:30 p.m., and the film will go until 2:45 p.m. Afterward, there is a free outdoor community event in Shaker Square for the festival, featuring live music. Feel free to come for the film, the outdoor event, or both! Family and friends are welcome, but the ERG will only be able to cover the cost of the film ticket for JCU staff members.

For more information, and to R.S.V.P., please fill out the form below.

Also, if you know any staff of color who joined JCU in the past year, please forward this invitation on to them, as they are likely not yet on our email list. We will be sure to add them to our mailing list if they email us, or attend a Staff of Color ERG event.
