Remembering 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.

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