Screening of The Fixers: Stories From A Greater Cleveland

Missed the chance to see The Fixers: Stories From A Greater Cleveland earlier this year?

Another screening of the film, directed by Cleveland artist Kate Sopko, will be held Wednesday, Oct. 5, from 6 to 8 p.m. in Robbins Building, E401.

The Fixers, originally filmed for the visitors of the 2016 Republican National Convention in July, features cultural “fixers” of Cleveland who tell their stories on such topics as:

  • What it’s like to ride public transit;
  • Young people addressing violence in their neighborhoods;
  • Efforts to increase healthy food access in Cleveland’s food deserts.

The Oct. 5 screening will be followed by a panel discussion featuring some of the “fixers” in the film:

  • Marvetta Rutherford, a lifelong public transit rider;
  • Naudia Loftis, a 17-year-old anti-violence activist;
  • Tanese Horton, a Wraparound school site coordinator;
  • Susan Greene, a certified nurse midwife;
  • Merle Gordon, director of Cleveland Department of Public Health; and
  • Yvonka Hall, executive director of the Northeast Ohio Black Health Coalition.

Two-hour free parking at Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital parking garage will be available during the event, which is free and open to the public.

The American Medical Student Association Race, Ethnicity, and Culture in Health Action Committee, the Master’s in Public Health program, Urban Health Pathway, and Humanities Pathway of CWRU School of Medicine will collaborate to host the screening.
