Hear Their Stories

There are 3 million Syrian refugees in 5 host countries. The Syrian civil war is one of the worst humanitarian disasters of our time, affecting not only internal affairs, but also the peace and stability of the surrounding countries. The Assad regime in Syria has killed 32,507 people, 75% of whom were civilians. The atrocities committed need recognition; this is our call to action. Just 4 donations of $25 will help support our film crew as we travel, film, and edit for our upcoming projects. Let’s not let the Syrian crisis pass by like another social media trend. Support 3 Generations as we share survivors’ stories of atrocity, and work to fulfill humanity’s potential through storytelling. You can make a difference!

We are excited to announce that the stories in our film “Three” are now available to stream online at 3generations.org. “Three” is a short and intimate account of three Syrian refugees’ stories that drives home the human scale of this crisis. Follow us on facebook and twitter for updates on our mission to spread awareness about the personal plight of atrocity.

We deeply appreciate your time and support. Help us record the voices that go unheard.

Combating Sex Trafficking in 2015

Help put an end to child sex trafficking! You can support 3 Generations as we raise awareness by sharing survivor stories and working directly with organizations that participate in direct service and advocacy. The fight against trafficking has seen some tremendous wins recently, with 37 states passing more comprehensive trafficking laws in the past year alone (polarisproject.org).

Our film TRICKED, which sheds light on the personal plights of victims and widespread sex trafficking in America, has been screened in cities across the country and we are thrilled to announce that TRICKED is now streaming on Netflix! We have been receiving amazing feedback, insight, and an array of diverse opinions since the release. Our goal is to engage people in issues that matter, working to spread awareness and to generate discourse. It is, therefore, incredibly rewarding to watch as our goals become reality.

We still need your help to educate and engage more people in this fight. Over the next year, 3 Generations will launch a law enforcement campaign which will utilize unreleased footage and extended interviews from TRICKED to educate law enforcement. Just 13 donations of $20 would help us distribute our law enforcement DVD and engagement materials to five major cities. The more support, the more we can do to help end this dehumanizing crime. Your donations and support matter to us; help us and be part of the change!

Tibetan National Uprising Day

Amid waving flags and rising chants, thousands around the world collected en masse last week with one demand: a free Tibet. This past March 10th marked the 56th Tibetan National Uprising Day, an event commemorating the failed Tibetan revolt against the Chinese occupation of Tibet in 1959. From Australia to New York City, from Berlin to Paris, thousands of ralliers voiced the same message cried 56 years ago.  

“All fighting age men who had survived the revolt were deported and those fleeing the scene reported that Chinese troops burned corpses in [Lhasa] for 12 hours.” - BBC’s account of the aftermath of the Tibetan revolt.

Since then little has changed. At the Europe Stands with Tibet rally in Paris, a former nun remarked of her 12 year incarceration that began 1990. Following a peaceful protest in favor of the freedom of speech and religion, Gyaltsen Drolkar found herself in a Chinese jail where she says she was relentlessly tortured. “They used electric instruments,” Drolkar recounts, “I would faint, and when I came to, they would start again.” Even today, the oppression remains. Tibetans can still be arrested if caught with the writings or pictures of the Dalai Lama.

As the rallies spread, pressing for freedom of expression in Tibet and the end of oppression by the chinese government, few seem optimistic. Nadine Baumann, executive director of the Tibet Initiative Deutschland, mentioned during a rally in Germany, “the human rights situation in Tibet has increasingly deteriorated since Xi Jinping came to power in 201, despite our initial hopes for a new dialogue-oriented Tibet policy from the Chinese government.”


By capturing the stories of Tibetan survivors on film, 3 Generations looks to bring the issue of the continued oppression in Tibet to the forefront of public opinion. Through their stories we help raise awareness of Tibet's plight and providing avenues that honor those who have died and to foster the healing process in survivors. With your continued support, 3 Generations can help foster a growing audience with a singular message: free Tibet.
