The Crown Act

The Crown ActThis panel will address the growing topic of natural hair and discrimination in the workplace, discuss the CROWN Act, it’s power and protection for Black women and women of color and take a deep dive into how this moment has helped leverage our voices and led to a movement.

The CROWN Act, which stands for “Create a Respectful and Open World for Natural Hair,” is a law that prohibits race-based hair discrimination, which is the denial of employment and educational opportunities because of hair texture or protective hairstyles including braids, locs, twists or bantu knots.

First introduced in California in January 2019 and signed into law on July 3, 2019, the inaugural CROWN Act expanded the definition of race in the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) and state Education Code, to ensure protection in workplaces and in K-12 public and charter schools. Since then, The CROWN Act has galvanized support from federal and state legislators in the movement to end hair discrimination nationwide. California’s initiative is led by Senator Holly J. Mitchell, the first to introduce and name The CROWN Act SB188.
