I saw "Lost in Lebanon" at the Human Rights Watch Film Festival, and the film truly opened my eyes to the humanity within the Syrian refugee crisis. One of the refugees was sponsored to get out of Lebanon after his story was seen. As part of the screening, there was a Q&A with a representative of the United Nations. This company is clearly making real changes in public policy and in the way society views social injustices.
The people at three generations possess something that is missing in modern American society. A sense of empathy, and a sense of responsibility toward others. I have immensely enjoyed all the time I have spent with them. They are dedicated People with huge hearts.
I just recently watched "Tricked" on Netflix, and it opened my eyes to how sex trafficking is a crime committed in our own backyards that the public is often ignorant to. It made me want to look into other films from 3 Generations and see what social issues they bring to light.
I went to the screening of 3 Generations film "Lost in Lebanon" at the Human Rights Watch Film Festival in June and I was extremely impressed with how they told the stories of Syrian Refugees. Looking forward to seeing more of there films in the future.
I've known 3G and its staff for a year now and it was one of the most, if not the most, hard working group of people out there. It's a tight knit group of people whose mission really is to give the marginalized people out there a voice. Not only is everyone always working to further that goal, but everyone is truly passionate about it; it comes out in the films and video testimonies. Everything that comes out of 3G really works to illuminate the circumstances of issues and people that are often forgotten in the U.S. While people often talk about the generalities of poverty or genocide, 3G shows you those very people it affects and gives these stories a face.
I follow 3 Generations on facebook and I love how they challenge the status quo and continue to highlight important news about extremely important topics like the oppression of Native Americans rights and genocide that continues to happen every day.
3 Generations' mission is unlike most other non-profits, but the act of sharing stories through film is incredibly rewarding. The organization is incredibly driven to find new stories and topics to help raise awareness and take action to fight against abuses. Three Generations' work is vital to ameliorating human rights abuses, and I hope their excellent work continues far into the future!
I have voluteered for 3 Generations so I am very familiar with this organization. They truly advocate for the truth and serve to give voice to the voiceless. Through this organization, I learned a great deal about a variety of issues effecting our world today. They have helped bring light to the stories of some of the 20 million victims of sex trafficking worldwide through their feature, Tricked (available on Netflix) as well as content on their site. They have brought about environmental awareness and activism through content on the melting glaciers of Greenland and Standing with Standing Rock as well as their most recent feature, A Different American Dream. They bring attention to human rights issues and violations, most recently in collaboration with the Scott Sisters on their feature documentary on Syrian refugees living in Lebanon, Lost in Lebanon. Its also very important to mention, they have been instumental in bringing one of the seminal documentaries on the Holocaust to North America, with their distribution of German Concentration Camps Factual Survey. In these dark times, the world needs more organizations like 3 Generations, dedicated to social awareness and justice.
They make such compelling films! They have helped raised awareness about important causes using film as an engaging medium. Keep it up!
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 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 terrific organization which uses the power of film to shed light on various human rights abuses. 3 Generations works diligently to ensure that various human rights abuses are given the attention they deserve. 3 Generations looks to impact the conversation with its powerful films and personal stories. Truly an inspirational organization.
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!
