the crown act
The CROWN Act was created in 2019 by Dove and the CROWN Coalition, in partnership with then State Senator Holly J. Mitchell of California, to ensure protection against discrimination based on race-based hairstyles by extending statutory protection to hair texture and protective styles such as braids, locs, twists, and knots in the workplace and public schools.
JOIN THE MOVEMENT
People should not be forced to divest themselves of their
racial-cultural identity by changing their natural hair in order to adapt to predominantly white spaces in the workplace or in school.
