Akter, executive director of the Bangladesh Center for Worker Solidarity, this week is wrapping up nearly a month-long trip to the U.S. and Canada, where she has been advocating on behalf of garment workers in Bangladesh in the wake of two factory tragedies that killed more than 1,240 workers in separate incidents this April and in November 2012.
