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, 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!

You + Global Giving + 3 Generations = 50% more support for survivors!

Tomorrow, your support of our project means even more. Global Giving is offering to match your donation by 50% on July 16th from 9:00 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. (EDT). 

Take this opportunity to make your yearly or monthly donation. 

There are other exciting prizes for our project as well, including big cash bonuses that will help us all year long as we record more stories from Rwanda, Tibet, Cambodia, and the US. You can help us share these stories.

Hurry, this offer is only viable from 9:00 a.m. until 11:59 p.m. (EDT) on July 16th!

Thanks to our generous donors who have already helped us get closer to our goal.  Our team is so lucky to have such great supporters!

When filming for TRICKED began four years ago, few of us knew what to expect. Research material was limited and awareness of sex trafficking in the US was minimal to say the least. Since then, considerable progress has been made. Public interest has grown, federal and state legislation around trafficking and underage prostitution has improved, law enforecement officials are better prepared to help prostitutes or suspected victims of trafficking and service providers for trafficking victims have received more funding for research and development. Sadly however, not all trafficking victims have felt the effects of this progress. As awareness grows around the commercial sexual exploitation of girls, we ask but what about our boys? Young men are also forced to work in the sex industry and they do so in the shadows.

Meet Nikolas, the subject of 3 Generations' latest short film, What About the Boys.

Nikolaos was 17 when his father kicked him out of home for being gay. Within hours he was drugged, sexually abused and being sold for sex by his first pimp. Other pimps followed and kept him under their control with drugs and threats of death. Five years later, after the murder of one of his friends by her pimp, Nick finally broke free. Today he is studying to be a therapist and hopes to raise awareness and funds to start an exit program for young gay men forced to work in the sex industry.

Through one frank and gritty testimony, What About the Boys dispels some of the common myths about gay prostitution and offers a heart-wrenching look at how one young American boy was brutalized almost to the point of insanity. Help us share Nick's story by donating to our End Child Sex Slavery project today!
