Rio de Janeiro state congresswoman and re-election candidate Renata Souza, of the Socialism and Freedom Party (PSOL) walks in the streets of Mare favela, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on September 02, 2022. - Renata Souza calls it the most painful moment of her life: the day gunmen murdered her friend and fellow activist Marielle Franco, an outspoken black- and LGBTQ-rights campaigner whose killing triggered outcry in Brazil and beyond. But four years later, Souza -- who, like Franco, defines herself as "a black woman from the favela" -- is carrying on the slain Rio de Janeiro city councilor's fight, running for reelection as a state lawmaker in Brazil's October 2 elections.
