Assa Traoré

About Assa

Since her brother Adama was asphyxiated to death in a police station on his 24th birthday in 2016, Traoré has been leading the fight to find out the truth about what happened to her brother, creating the "Justice for Adama" movement in the process.

Adama’s death, having been compared to the recent death of George Floyd, has sparked protests across France and Assa has worked tirelessly to shine a light on racial injustice and police brutality.
