On Thursday, February 13th, Student Action with Workers will be hosting two Bangladeshi workers to discuss their experiences in the garment industry. Kalpona Akhter is one of the foremost female labor organizers in the country, and Reba Sikder is a 19-year-old garment worker and survivor of the deadly Rana Plaza collapse. They will speak about their struggle to improve factory safety and working conditions in Bangladesh and describe what UNC students and community members can do to contribute to the effort.
