The Second Gift: A New Gold Rush in the Wild Wild West

"We have seven reservations in the state of Montana... when it comes to the crimes that are affecting us, we're all on the same reservation." - Judge Gregory Mohr, Sidney, MT

The fracking oil boom is not just impacting prices at the pump. It takes a toll on communities, migratory animals and those most vulnerable to exploitation by the influx of oil workers with free time and cash to spend: Native American women, girls and boys who are trafficked to "man-camps" in the most callous example of the Wild West mentality. 

We are excited to announce that the award-winning documentary filmmaker Simon Brook has signed on to direct 3 Generations' upcoming film The Second Gift, which will explore the societal toll of fracking on Native American communities living around the Bakken oil fields. Preparation work has begun and we hope to begin filming this coming January. 

Today, on Columbus Day or as we like to call it, Indigenous People's Day, consider America's history with Native Americans. Take action to stop the egregious violations of the earth and the basic human rights of Native American women and children by donating now.

Help Us Give Thanks

Giving thanks to those who risk their lives for the safety of others is important, especially with Veteran’s Day coming up next month. However, it is also important to cater to the needs of soldiers who come home after experiencing what many of us cannot fathom. Medical treatment for veterans is not overwhelmingly effective. Many go untreated with PTSD, and other mental or physical conditions, not to mention their vulnerability to unemployment, poverty, and homelessness. Help 3 Generations share their stories and raise awareness about the battle they face not solely during deployment, but also at home.

1 donation of $5 helps us research to identify homeless veterans. 25 donations of $20 would allow us to interview and audio record the story of one homeless veteran. The more support, the more we can do to raise awareness about their conditions in America. Help be a part of the change!

Renew Your Commitment to End Atrocity Today!

Now, more than ever we need renew our commitment to visualizing a better world as we face these harrowing times. With 9 million Syrian refugees displaced as a result of war, ebola costing thousands their lives, conflict in the middle east, institutionalized racism, African-American teens asked to leave neighborhoods by the NYPD, sexual assault charges standing without conviction, climate change, the prevalence of human trafficking, and so much more, it is time for serious change. We are in a period of unraveling, as aggression and hatred seem to prevail. But as persistent and extreme as these atrocities are, we have the artillery to fight back: hope, discussion, optimism, and action.

As we stand back and consider the world around us, it is so important that we take time to commit ourselves to a world that values peace and acceptance over power and strife. You can be a part of this change and help 3 Generations amplify the voices of those whose stories are unheard, whose odds are stacked against them. A donation can help shape a better tomorrow.
