One Year Anniversary of the CROWN Act Becomes CROWN Day

On July 3, 2019, the inaugural CROWN Act was signed into law in California, making it illegal to discriminate against natural hair and protective styles like braids, locs, twists and knots. Today, marks one year since California put an end to hair discrimination with the CROWN Act (Create a Respectful and Open Workplace for Natural Hair) authored by Senator Holly J. Mitchell. The signing of the CROWN Act sparked an international movement, with seven states following in suit and many others in the process of putting an end to hair discrimination.

Senator Holly Mitchell in partnership with the CROWN Coalition and DOVE are calling July 3, National CROWN Day to stand in solidarity for the human rights of Black women, men, and children to wear their natural hair boldly, and proudly, without the fear of being discriminated against in school or the workplace.
