3 Generations

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.

Updated website & new focus on genocide of Yezidi

Our next project will focus on the Yezidi victims of ISIS in Iraq. There are an estimated one million Yezidi worldwide and over half are currently living in Iraq, at great risk, with horrific and disturbing stories to share. At 3 Generations we are determined to bring these vital stories to public attention. As we develop new partnerships with Yezidi survivors we will endeavor to bring those stories to you as quickly as possible.


Meanwhile we have continued to spread awareness through stories of genocide and persecution of populations across our social media channels, including our website. We have recently added an interactive map to our website. Now visitors can see the countries where we work and can easily view all the interviews from any given country by topic, for example,  the genocide in Rwanda. We encourage you to take a look at the map and accompanying short films as we regularly add new interviews and short videos.

Reaching more people than ever before!

Tricked Facebook page
Tricked Facebook page

As many of you know we released our film Tricked in 2013. The film it is about the sex industry and sex trafficking in the United States.  If you haven’t seen it yet you can watch it right now on Netflix. Tricked has successfully been reaching ever wider audiences every month due in large part to its availability on Netflix. We often hear from Netflix viewers who say that they have just discovered the film and did not realize the extent of sex trafficking in the United States.

We have also continued our commitment to telling important stories related to sex trafficking through our social media pages. Every day we increase our reach to new people, especially through our Facebook page for Tricked. Just yesterday we reported on a man found guilty for trafficking girls as young as 13 and subjecting some of them to beatings, which included victims being punched in the face and whipped with a belt. His work as a pimp spanned a decade as he prostituted seven minor victims and transported them from California to Arizona, Texas, Georgia, Washington, D.C., and Nevada. We received a lot of reactions from new and old followers who were hearing about this story for the first time.

We will be continuing our daily work on this topic and hope to be able to share new projects we have been working on when we report to you next. Thank you for your continued support and please check out the Facebook page for 3 Generations and Tricked for more frequent updates on our work.

The refugee crisis is worse than ever.

Since our last update, the refugee crisis has sadly only worsened. UNHCR recently published a report showing us that there are currently 65.3 million people who have been forcibly displaced, making it the highest number of displaced people in recorded history. Global Giving has been a tremendous partner, and has steadfastly recognized that the need for addressing the Syrian refugee crisis is greater now than ever before. With that said, we are very excited to announce thatwe will be participating in Global Giving’s Syrian Refugee Relief Matching Campaign starting on July 12th. Global Giving will match any donations made to this project by 50% on beginning on Tuesday the 12th.

As a result of the donations from our Global Giving donors, the Scott Sisters are finishing the edit of our film Beyond the Borders in Lebanon. Working locally has the double benefit of enabling the production to hire Syrian refugees to work on the film. Famed Lebanese editor Marwan Ziadeh has also joined the production. We are very happy that the support this project has received has enabled them to employ refugees currently living in Lebanon.
