Details:

California Governor Gavin Newsome signed a bill, titled the Crown Act, into law banning discrimination against black students and employees over their natural hairstyles. The new law takes effect Jan. 1, 2020


Why it Matters:

A poll commissioned by Dove found that black women are 80% more likely to change their natural hair to meet social norms or expectations at work. The study all so found, that Black women were 30% more likely to receive a formal grooming policy in the workplace at both the application and orientation phase. Federal courts typically recognize Afros as a hairstyle that is protected under anti-discrimination laws.


Remember When?

Last year an African-American high school wrestler from New Jersey was forced at the match to cut his dreadlocks or forfeit the match.
