Remembering Brazilian Activist Marielle Franco

Just days before the one year anniversary of activist Marielle Franco's assassination in Brazil, prosecutors there charged two former police officers with her murder. Those arrests may provide a partial answer to the question of who killed her but many other questions, including who ordered her killing and why, remain unanswered.

In this excerpt, we visit a demonstration in New York City remembering Marielle's life and what she fought for in Brazil.
