3 Generations is thrilled to announce the release of our new Law Enforcement DVD! At the request of members of the FBI's Innocence Lost Task Force, 3 Generations has created an additional DVD especially for trainings. The Law Enforcement DVD Extras includes explicit interviews with pimps outlining their methods of recruitment and control as well as extended interviews with the law enforcement officials and johns featured in Tricked. This footage was deemed too controversial to be included in the public release of Tricked and is, therefore, strictly for educational purposes.
3 Generations' Law Enforcement DVD is the next step in 3G's effort to engage the public on the issue of sex trafficking and create meaningful change. Over the last 10 years, public attitudes towards prostitution have shifted in a number of important ways. A developing body of research on America's sex industry has revealed the prevalence of sex trafficking here in the United States. Increased awareness regarding sex trafficking has resulted in public demands for changes in laws concerning treatment of children caught in the sex industry, services for victims of trafficking and penalties for purchasers and pimps. Gone are the days when prostitution was viewed as a victimless crime. There is, however, considerable work to be done. In order to continue to combat sex trafficking, it is critical that law enforcement officials and those on the front lines of the fight learn how to interact with individuals who have very likely suffered unimaginable abuse.
It is 3 Generations' hope that by providing law enforcement officials around the country with the stories of those involved in all sides of America's sex trade, officials may gain a greater understanding of both the perpetrators and the victims. 3 Generations would not have been able to continue its campaign to end sex trafficking without the help of its supporters. Please join us in our fight! A donation of just $20 will help fund the production and packaging of one DVD. We can get it into the hands of police departments all over the country. Donate today and help make it happen!
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!
What is it like to find yourself suddenly involved in a world of slavery? A world of exploitation, oppression, and psychological torment. To many survivors, their immersion into the world of sex trafficking was unexpected and all too sudden. A boy in Chicago flees a volatile family and suddenly finds himself being 'broken in' for the world of prostitution. In Boston, a college freshman meets a stranger at a party and soon after becomes another victim to the Johns of Massachusetts.
In our continued effort to amplify and convey the voices of victims worldwide, 3 Generations recently screened interviews of survivors from our feature film, TRICKED. In a speaking panel following the screening, survivors Nick and Danielle provided their own insights on how easily the world of sex slavery can claim another victim. In their own words we learned how a combination of psychological manipulation at the hands of pimps and the johns who fuel the trade only perpetuate the cycle of slavery.
3 Generations' campaign to end child sex slavery in the U.S relies on your support to raise awareness for the hidden world of sex trafficking. As we look to 2015, 3 Generations will continue to amplify and honor the voices of survivors to ensure children do not find themselves vulnerable to world of sex slavery. 2015 will be a year in which we highlight the dark and little discussed exploitation of young boys.
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, the last one being Miami. But we need your help to educate and engage more people in this fight.
Just 5 donations of $20 will help us invest in the latest technology to help vulnerable survivors. 13 donations of $20 will be used to for special tools like hidden cameras to expose the dangerous world of sex trafficking. With more support, the more we can do to help end this dehumanizing crime. You’re donations and support matter to us; help be a part of the change!
