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.

End Child Sex Slavery in the US

3 Generations uses filmed stories to bring attention to the issue and we partner with organizations doing the most effective direct service or advocacy work. Survivor stories and thematic videos are made available on our website, 3generations.org, and promoted throughout our social media networks and the networks of our partners. The goals of our campaign are to: Educate people about the 300,000 child sex slaves in the United States; Help survivors of child sex slavery tell their stories and speak out; Inspire people to take action and make a difference; Honor the dignity of survivors and victims.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

With the goal of ending atrocity one voice at a time, 3 Generations is dedicated to helping survivors tell their stories to the world through documentary film. By creating broad audiences through film festivals, educational outreach, and more we look to influence the national dialogue and build momentum for social change.

As a storytelling organization, 3 Generations endeavors to share the stories of individuals who have endured tremendous abuse and suffering. To do this, we work on location to interview those victimized by these atrocities and convey their voices to as wide an audience as possible. We curate and cross-reference the stories of survivors of different atrocities to illuminate the common experiences shared by victims across the world. Through a constant effort to record and convey, 3 Generations brings these stories to screenings and film festivals around the world thereby ensuring voices, that would otherwise be lost, are heard.

We employ a wide array of methodologies to bring a focus to those affected by atrocities worldwide. With the aid of creative minds and leading experts in human rights, 3 Generations uses factual evidence and anecdotal testimony to convey the sentiments of victims in areas of conflict. Through film festivals, community screenings, social media and online platforms we look to share the stories of survivors around the world and elicit a national dialogue regarding ending global atrocities.

Since its inception in 2007, 3 Generations has brought the voices of victims of human rights abuses to an audience of over 10 million people around the world. In 2013, we saw five world premieres for our films as well as premieres for our two feature films, Tricked and Native Silence. With growing support, our films have earned multiple accolades. This year, Native Silence has gained recognition as an official selection for the American Indian Film Festival and Red Nation Film Festival. With Tricked winning the Honolulu Film Awards’ Silver Lei Award and Native Silence winning the best shorts award at the Best Shorts Competition, 3 Generations continues its effort to bring the stories of survivors to audiences domestically and internationally.

While we have been able to spark a dialogue through our campaigns, we strive to further our impact with current projects such as the effort to end child sex slavery in the US and to capture the voices of survivors of Genocide in Cambodia, Rwanda, and Tibet.
