Public Service Announcement: Anacostia Unplugged

Dear Readers,

I want to talk to you today about something that’s not in my usual line of work: the environment. Specifically, I’d like to draw your attention to a documentary project that a friend of mine is working on in Washington D.C. called: Anacostia Unplugged.

What is Anacostia Unplugged?

A free, online documentary series about how going outside is saving lives, preserving the environment, and empowering communities along the Anacostia River. The series will follow the lives of individuals living along the Anacostia River and show their journey as they connect with the natural environment of a historically neglected and polluted Watershed. Through their stories, we will begin to understand why we need to reconnect with our natural surroundings, the surprising benefits of being outdoors, and the consequences of our plugged-in lifestyles. Viewers will ultimately be challenged to examine how our society’s increasingly sedentary and indoor lifestyles are hazardous to our health and quality of life.

How can you help make this project happen?

If you can, please help spread the word about or donate to the project’s Kickstarter. Donations of as little as a $1 are welcome and very much appreciated since the number of supporters is just as important to us as the amount of money raised. It shows that there’s a need for this kind of programming and grassroots support behind it.

For more information about the documentary series, the director, and project contributors, please check out the The Kickstarter campaign.
