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.

Big changes on our project

Buffalo on Fort Berthold
Buffalo on Fort Berthold

At 3 Generations we have been working to raise awareness of the threat fracking poses to  Native American lands for over two years. In that time we have achieved so much, including several visits to Fort Berthold Reservation in North Dakota that produced a feature documentary film A Different American Dream.

And our work has only begun. The film will have its US Premiere in October in New York City. And with that comes the roll out of our engagement campaign.

Today on Global Giving we are proud to announce the re-design of that campaign, with a new titile and an expanded focus. We have re-named our campaign Saving Native Lands and Language, a title that emphasizes what we have learned are critical needs to support work by members of the MHA Nation on Fort Berthold.

We are now supporting efforts to preserve the three languages of the MHA Nation.  This call to action is now a critical element of the engagement campaign of film A DIfferent American Dream.

We are thrilled to be a the forefront of connecting the preservation of traditional cultures with action on environmental justice. 

We have other complememtary films and videos nearing completition. With your support we will be able to roll them out along with their vital calls to action.

If you care about the preservation of all pristine landscapes, please support this project.

If you understand that the loss of language and culture is a loss to all humanity, please lend your support to this vital work.

At 3 Generations we are a small team tackling complex and important issues. We invite you,  your friends and colleagues to join us in this work. You will be making an impact.

Thank you

Introducing Our Veterans Video Lab

Between 529,000 and 840,000 veterans are homeless at some time during the year. On any given night, more than 300,000 veterans are living on the streets or in shelters in the United States. These are just a few of the startling statistics regarding the current state of veterans in the United States. Here at 3 Generations we are proud to announce our newest effort to raise awareness of the issues facing veterans today: Our Veterans Video Lab (or VLAB).

Research shows that individual-based narrative exposure therapy, aka storytelling, is effective with individuals with high levels of PTSD. Telling their stories helps heal victims of violence. At 3 Generations our plan is to utilize social video marketing to tell the stories of the 21.6 million U.S. veterans. The goal to create a mobile video lab where we can make high quality social videos of veterans on the street, in our office or anywhere veterans want to tell their stories. 

Our mission is to create survivor-based evidence, to use it as a catalyst for change (via the organizations we partner with), all the while maintaining an ever-growing archive of these human rights abuses. Our methodology has been extremely successful, reaching audiences in the millions, generating tens of millions of media hits, and leading to awards for both ourselves and our partner NGOs. We have launched media campaigns that included local, national and international press coverage.

We are extremely excited about launching our veterans video lab, and it is made possible by your continued support in our organization. Thanks to generous individuals like you we are able to do all that we aspire to do. Thank you!

Continuing The Fight

The last few months have been filled with exciting events at 3 Generations. Our short film Three, which documents the story of three Syrian refugees in Jordan, recently premiered at the Socially Relevant Film Festival in New York City on March 17th. We were thrilled to have several members of our team at the event to see the reaction the film received. 

In continuation of our efforts to have genocide included in the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court, we hosted environmental lawyer Polly Higgins on April 20th in New York City. Ms. Higgins spoke on many pressing issues within the topic of ecocide, and we were happy to be able to engage community members in conversation.

3 Generations Executive Director Jane Wells and Intern Luis Rivera-Nesrala also took part in the 2nd Annual Glocal Symposium at New York University on April 23rd. Rivera-Nesrala gave a presentation on Syrian refugees and how Western media has mischaracterized their true situation. 

Our ability to honor these individuals and organizations is all thanks to our generous supporters just like you. We are dedicated to continuing our work in the fight to end genocide. We invite you to check out our website, www.3generations.org, for updates on this and all of our many projects.
