End Hair Discrimination in MO: Pass the CROWN Act Now!

19 so far! Help us get to 25 signers!

I urge you to support HB1900 (Proudie), HB1591 (Bosley), HB2515 (Bland Manlove), and any similar bills, which establish the “Missouri Creating a Respectful and Open World for Natural Hair (Missouri CROWN) Act.” Currently, it is legal to discriminate against a person in the workplace or schools because of their natural or protective hairstyle. Hair discrimination remains a source of racial injustice with serious economic consequences for Black Missourians. The CROWN Act corrects these racial injustices by making hair discrimination illegal. Only Black people in this country are shamed and punished for wearing hairstyles consistent with their natural hair. Every day, Black Missourians are being robbed of employment opportunities, education, and their dignity because employers and institutions can code their racism in dress code policies and concepts like ‘professionalism’ that were designed to keep Black people out. Please support these bills to end hair discrimination in Missouri.
