Mission:

3 Generations is a non-profit organization that documents stories of human rights abuses through film. We enable survivors of crimes against humanity to record their experiences as an act of healing, a call to action and to create historical evidence. We amplify and honor each witness’s voice by creating broad audiences: film festivals, educational outreach, theatrical and community screenings, social media, partnerships, web-channels and more. Our goal is to influence the national dialogue and build momentum for social change.

Target demographics:

survivors of atrocities share their stories.

Geographic areas served:

the United States and around the world

Programs:

In October 2010, 3 Generations announced the launch of a campaign to end child sex slavery in the United States. Every year approximately 100,000 children in the United States, many of them very young girls, are enslaved in the commercial sex trade industry. We have filmed and shared stories of survivors, parents, law enforcement professionals, and individuals who lead advocacy efforts to address this crisis. We have shared our stories with thousands of viewers and have amassed an active and growing following of advocates, activists, and donors through our website (www.3generations.org) and through our social media networks (@3Generations on Twitter and www.facebook.com/3Generations). The campaign has secured the support of noted celebrities, lawmakers, nonprofit leaders, philanthropists, and dozens of organizations that are doing incredible work on the ground to end child sex slavery. To date we have partnered with organizations such as the Polaris Project, the Demi and Ashton Foundation (DNA Foundation), Girls Educational and Mentoring Services (GEMS), the Denver Police, Minnesota Indian Women's Resource Center, The National Crittenton Foundation, and Witness. On December 13th, 2013 3 Generations released its first feature film entitled Tricked. The film explores the issue of sex trafficking in America and has since been shown in cities across the United States and around the world. Through our engagement campaign for the film, 3 Generations has spread awareness to thousands, promoted legislative improvements to counteract the criminalization victims and has encouraged better police practices through the creation of the Malone Prize which awards law enforcement officials who lead the way in combating sex trafficking on the front-lines.

Reviews for Three Generations Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

3 Generations does a tremendous job using the power of film to give survivors a voice and ensure survivors of human rights abuses have their stories heard. Not only does 3 Generations successfully bring these stories to light, they are also thought leaders within the community working to enact real positive changes in the world around them.

I had the fortune and pleasure to work with the 3 Generations team, and after all my experiences with this organization I can proudly say they are a nonprofit that truly loves the work they do and deserves support.

Recently went to the NY International Shorts Film Fest and saw their film A System Of Justice. Loved the film, as heartbreaking as it was.

This organization does the crucial work of opening up spaces of healing and dialogue, humanizing survivors of atrocity, and through the power of storytelling. Few other organizations have been able to tie together the universal story of survival in the way that 3G has done and continues to do, and tie that to action on behalf of and with survivors.

Could not speak too highly of this organisation. Using video and film to highlight Human Rights abuses going back a hundred years. From the Armenian genocide at the beginning of the last century, to their current work on what is happening at this very moment in Syria, Africa, North Dakota and elsewhere, 3g brings public awareness to a wide range of subjects that do not have enough publicity. It does so by focusing on individual stories of men and women, young and old, just like you and me. Direct, personal accounts that bare witness to issues that affect us all. I am proud to be a donor.

What links a survivor of the Armenian Genocide that took place a century ago with a barely teenage victim of sex abuse being pimped on the streets of the US?

The answer is 3Generations.org.

A deeply committed and innovative not-for-profit that is using the internet and digital video to record the personal stories of victims in their own words. Bearing witness to the suffering and exploitation of others is an act of deep respect and humanity through which we can all share and grow. If we are also motivated to act and try and achieve change in our troubled world, so much the better.

the first thing you can do is support this organisation and spread the word.

I have met survivors of the Darfur genocide who have shared their stories through 3Gen, and seen how the simple experience of being heard can become part of their recovery.

I continued to be moved by the quality and depth of the documentary making of 3 generations. This is an organisation that does not shy away from communicating harsh facts and distressing realities on behalf of marginalised communities in our society. This form of witness is crucial to engage potential, provoke discussion and enact change.

Seeing the videos and reading the stories of individuals brings to life the reality and brutality of war for a vast number of people. Individuals can survive, with incredible hope, however they carry untold scars. The powerful message of the work of 3Generations is that If we don't speak out, we can't challenge these atrocities, and suffering continues through generations. What a waste.

I have seen the charity work for 5 years, in which time it has produced 2 documentaries. Both have been distributed, won awards and achieved way beyond the expectations of a professional film production company. In addition 3G uses the films as powerful springboards for high profile awareness campaigns of human rights abuses both in the USA and abroad. It has a powerful reach that belies its size and funding.

3 Generations is a truly unique and inspired organization that harnesses the power of film to help influence the national dialogue about 21st century human right abuses. By carefully and respectfully empowering survivors to be filmed, the 3G team tirelessly reminds us about all kinds of people who suffer abuse at the hands of others – their powerful, personal stories are recorded as a lesson for the present and a record for the future. 3G designs engagement campaigns for both its features and short films to extend the reach of their stories to audiences everywhere. That's how you change the conversation. That's the success of 3 Generations.

Three Generations is one of my all time favorite non-profit organizations. The content they produce is thought-provoking and attention grabbing without being sensational. I had the opportunity to see how they interacted with the subjects of a few of their films and stories, and I was very touched by the tenderness and respect they showed throughout the documentary process. Terrific organization and I will continue to support them in any way I can.

The videos and stories that 3 Generations produces to expose human rights abuse like child sex slavery are so important. Many people aren't aware that child sex slavery exists in the United States and raising awareness about the issue is critical to ending it. I've shared 3 Generations videos with my friends and they've all commented on how well the videos and the website explain the situation and provide ways to get involved. This is a great organization!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

sharing videos with my friends and hearing their feedback about how the website helped them learn more about the issue.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

help them share more survivor stories.
