Our Chapter


As an affiliate chapter of the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ), the mission of the Greater Cleveland Association of Black Journalists (GCLEABJ) is to serve and strengthen the community by honestly reflecting the past, accurately reporting the present with perspective, and providing support, inspiration, fellowship and opportunities for journalists of color.


Reinstituted in 2013, GCLEABJ is composed of print, radio, TV and digital journalists as well as public relations and communications professionals from across Northeast Ohio. Since our inception, we’ve hosted a regional conference which led to us being named co-chapter of the year by NABJ in 2016, and won the bid to host the 2025 NABJ convention and career fair.
