Colorado’s CROWN Act Banning Discrimination Against Natural Hair Officially Goes Into Effect!


The state of Colorado has officially put into effect a law banning any form of discrimination towards natural hair within the workplace as well as schools.

The CROWN act, was originally passed into legislation back in March on the basis of protecting men and women from being targeted within public education, employment practices, housing, public accommodations and advertising because of their hair textures, reports the Denver Post .

The bill reads, “People of African descent are deprived of educational and employment opportunities because they are adorned with natural or protective hairstyles in which hair is tightly coiled or tightly curled or worn in locs, cornrows, twists, braids, Bantu knots, or Afros.”

Reports read that as of right now a total of 22 states have considered passing a similar law to protect residence against natural hair discrimination.
