Project SING

Feature-length film (in production). An inspiring group of older people in DC’s Fort Lincoln neighborhood attempt to address the root causes of isolation amongst their peers.

Project SING tells the story of an inspiring group of older people in DC’s Fort Lincoln neighborhood, who attempt to use the process of community organizing to mobilize a renewed sense of purpose and empowerment in their lives and address the root causes of isolation amongst their peers. On the fringe of the city, Fort Lincoln has the city’s highest concentration of seniors, many of whom struggle with isolation and a deteriorating sense of community. In early 2013, the AARP Foundation and facilitators from Catholic University introduced community-organizing concepts to senior residents from a dozen housing clusters in the neighborhood. Coining their effort “Project S.I.N.G” (Seniors in Isolation Needing Guidance), the participants began learning how to engage with their neighbors to identify problems and organize community-led solutions. The film explores the power of community, perseverance, and people taking control of their lives during their ‘third chapter’ of life.
