What, to you, does a world without atrocity look like?
This is the question 3 Generations has been posing to global leaders, thinkers and artists for the past several years. In the last couple months, we were able to conduct interviews with two incredibly inspiring individuals. The first, Lama Fakih, is the Syria and Lebanon researcher at Human Rights Watch. Her interview was filmed in conjunction with our latest project- Three and can be viewed here. The second interviewee, Bill Joy, co-founded Sun Microsystems in 1982 and served as its chief scientist until 2003. Today, however, Joy is a Partner Emeritus at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers where he works to fund and support innovative and sustainable technologies that address the issue of climate change. Check out his interview here.
As always, we thank you for your continued support of our work. So much of what we do depends on people like you. Please consider helping us continue the End of Atrocity project by donating today.

Once again, thank you for all your support and be sure to check out 3 Generations' newest Global Giving project - Why We Speak: Help Spread Syrian Stories.
The new year typically brings a sense of renewel; of second chances and opportunities to change. For many right now, however, the light at the end of the tunnel appears to be well beyond reach. Like every year, 2013 had its challenges. In Syria, the refugee crisis exploded with numbers swelling from around 500,000 in January 2013 to 2.2 million by December 2013 while in Sudan, Mali, and Somalia, thousands more were displaced due to ongoing famine and sectarian violence. In the Phillippines, Typhoon Haiyan left relief groups scrambling to provide for the thousands who lost their homes while in Myanmar, massacres targeting the Rohingya Muslims have continued unabated. As we enter 2014, new crises have quickly emerged as the Central African Republic and South Sudan draw closer and closer to civil war and potentially, genocide. The list appears to be never ending. So what do we do?
Back in 2011, 3 Generations launched 'The End of Atrocity' project in which we commited ourselves to building a collective vision of what our world would look life without genocide, crimes agains humanity, an atrocity. The project was inspired by a comment made by the Dalai Lama who said, "if we cannot imagine a better world, how can we create one?" We decided to address this question head on and since 2011 we've interviewed numerous visionaries, each of which has unrelentingly pursued their commitment to eradicating intolerance and atrocity. Take for example, John Prendergast whose organization, the Enough Project, conducts intensive field research and produces practical polices to address crises in countries plagued by genocide and crime against humanity. As the situtations in South Sudan and the Central African Republic continue to worsen, Prendergast's work and the reports published by the Enough Project, have proven invaluable. Likewise, James and Stephen Smith, co-founders UK Holocaust Centre and Aegis Trust which manages the Kigali Genocide Memorial Centre, continue to work towards providing survivors and future generations with the education necessary to prevent genocide from reoccurring. As the 20th anniversary of the Rwandan Genocide approaches, Aegis Trust and the Kigali Genocide Memorial Centre have much to prepare for.
Each of these people have a vision and each is doing extraordinary work to make that vision a reality. Help us share the stories and visions of others like John, James, and Stephen by donating today.
