Women Leading the Way to Justice, Peace ... and tragedy

Witness for Peace delegates

In February of this year, a 20-member delegation from Witness for Peace left for Honduras, on a trip called Women Leading the Way to Justice and Peace.

They met with one of the most well-known representatives of that group:  influential environmental activist and indigenous leader of the Lenca people, Berta Cáceres, 

Ten days after the delegation returned home to Minnesota, Berta Cáceres was dead, shot in her home by armed intruders.

On Monday authorities in Honduras arrested four people in connection with Berta Cáceres' murder, according to National Public Radio.
