Bangladesh fire survivor seeks compensation

Sumi Abedin, who survived deadly Tazreen factory fire, lobbies for safer working conditions in her homeland.

Sumi Abedin was working in the factory when it caught fire. Now she has travelled to the United States to raise awareness of the working conditions in manufacturing factories in her homeland, and to ask for compensation. Here’s her story.
