The San Francisco Chapter of UNIFEM (United Nations Development Fund for Women) will host a fundraiser to support the work of Ninel (Neli) Babcinschi, an advocate and defender of trafficked victims in Moldova. Participants will hear from Kate Transchel, professor of Russian at California State University at Chico, and an expert in human trafficking in eastern Europe. She has just returned from 3 months in Russia, Ukraine, and Moldova, interviewing victims of trafficking. Ms. Transchel is advocating on behalf of Neli Babcinschi, a Moldovan lawyer in immediate danger of persecution because of her work to free victims of trafficking. Come hear her story and support her work. Also, UNIFEM will screen the film Call + Response, and will hear directly from the director about the making of the documentary. This event is co-sponsored by the Department on the Status of Women.
