The CROWN Act

  • Nonprofit advocates and communities across Connecticut are joining together to urge legislators to pass H.B. 5388, The CROWN Act, AN ACT CREATING A RESPECTFUL AND OPEN WORLD FOR NATURAL HAIR. We call on Connecticut legislators to take action to ensure hair discrimination in the workplace and all public spaces is eliminated.

    It’s time to take action to ensure protection against discrimination based on hair texture or styles. Urge your legislators to pass (H.B. 5388), AN ACT CREATING A RESPECTFUL AND OPEN WORLD FOR NATURAL HAIR by signing onto this letter. We thank you for your support of the CROWN Act (H.B. 5388).
