Support the CROWN Act to end hair discrimination
From schools to the workplace, Black natural hair is judged harshly. In 43 states hair can even be legally used to discriminate against someone. The cultural bias toward straight and loosely curly hair has real mental and career impacts on Black women. Natural hair is 3.4x more likely to be perceived as unprofessional in the workplace. In addition, 80% of Black women feel they need to change their hair from its natural state to fit in at the office.
This is not okay.
Sign the petition to end discrimination against textured hair and protective styles through legislation known as the CROWN Act. Through the CROWN Coalition, we have already successfully worked to pass legislation that ends race-based hair discrimination in seven states and the U.S. House of Representatives.
