Haitians around the world are still processing and grieving the assassination of Haitian president Jovenel Moïse.

The loss is especially strong in Massachusetts, which has the third-largest Haitian population in America.

We are joined by Marie St. Fleur, a former Massachusetts State Representative and now a principal at St. Fleur Communications and the CEO of a cannabis company. She was the first Haitian-American elected to state office in the U.S. Also joining us is Linda Dorcena Forry, a former Massachusetts State Senator, the first Haitian-American woman elected to the State Senate, and now a vice president at Suffolk Construction.
