Writers LIVE! Saket Soni

Saket Soni will recount one of the largest human trafficking cases in modern American history.  In 2006, Mr. Soni received an anonymous phone call that 500 migrant Indian workers, who were promised green cards in exchange for $20,000, were being held in inhumane conditions in the Gulf Coast as they worked on rebuilding oil rigs following Hurricane Katrina.  The author explains his efforts to aid the laborers and draw attention to their plight, as well as the many other foreign workers that the United States relies on for inexpensive skilled labor in the wake of climate disasters.

Saket Soni is the founder and executive director of Resilience Force, a nonprofit organization that advocates for workers that respond to climate disasters.
