Despite having lost everything - her home and her family- Nahar Alam is passionate about defending female migrant workers. She moved to the US from her native land, Bangladesh, to escape a life of domestic abuse. With no money, no family and no knowledge of English, she was mistreated and exploited but this time as a domestic worker. Determined to change her situation, she went back to school and volunteered at a non-profit organization promoting migrant workers' rights. Nowadays, Nahar works a community health worker and human rights defender in her free time.
