Support The CROWN Act
"I have to change my hair from its natural state to fit in at the office" does this statement ring true for you?
Did you know that if a black man or woman decides to wear their natural hair or hairstyles such as braids, locs, twists, Bantu knots, or Afros to work or school, they are at risk of being fired or sent home?
For Black people in the United States, choosing to wear their hair naturally can have financial consequences. Unfortunately, beauty for some in the United States needs to be protected by legislation.
In 43 states across the U.S., hair discrimination remains a source of racial injustice with severe economic consequences.
The C.O.W.N Act is a law that prohibits race-based hair discrimination and corrects racial injustices by making hair discrimination illegal.
I can't think of a better way to feel recharged than to help make things better for others. We need your help to end race-based hair discrimination by signing the crown act.
Your email will be sent to your Senator, ensuring their support for the bill, once it comes to vote.

Currently, it is legal to discriminate against a person in the workplace or in schools because of their natural or protective hairstyle in all states except for California, New York, New Jersey, Virginia, Colorado, Washington, and Maryland.
Hair discrimination remains a source of racial injustice with serious economic consequences for Black people. The CROWN Act corrects these racial injustices by making hair discrimination illegal.
The House of Representatives voted and passed the CROWN ACT, and as your constituent, I urge you to support the CROWN Act in the Senate.
