Black hair is policed. We’ve all seen the stories of kids being kicked out of school and people losing their jobs because of the appearance of their hair. The CROWN Act @crowncampaign ensures protection against discrimination based on hairstyles by extending statutory protection to hair texture and protective styles in the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) and state Education Codes. Professor Wendy Greene @professordwendy @naturallaw77 has dedicated her legal career to civil rights, racial and gender equity, and appearance discrimination. In this episode of @PsychoHairapy with Dr. Afiya, Professor Greene breaks down how she advocates for the CROWN Act at the local and national level to #FreeTheHair ! #thecrownact #crownact #hairdiscrimination #discrimination #blacklivesmatter #civilrights #civilrightsattorney #naturalhair #naturalhairstyles #blackhair #blackattorney #psychologist #blackpsychologist #psychohairapy #psychohairapypodcast #podcast #blackpodcasts #lawpodcast #psychologypodcast

“The societal norms and corporate grooming policies that unfairly impact Black women create distractions that impact our whole society. We know diversity has a positive impact on a company’s bottom line. Corporations refusing to hire, firing, or refusing to promote a Black woman because of her Protective Hairstyle not only destabilizes individual households but impacts the broader economy as the workforce boasts more working women than ever.[1] In 2019 Black women still remain pressured to conform to Eurocentric standards of appearance. Black women report receiving formal grooming policies at a rate significantly higher than White women. Natural hairstyles inherent to Black identity such as locks, braids, bantu knots, etc. are ranked the lowest for ‘job readiness.’ We can see a world where we are all valued for who we are, a world where we express our individuality without any concern. No woman should ever be “judged” or held back by her appearance.” - @dove #respectourcrown Join us tomorrow night at @theriveterco West Los Angeles for an evening full of conversations and social change surrounding the CROWN Act. Refreshments and gift bags will be provided to all guests! Link in bio to register, no tickets will be sold at the door. Hope to see you there!

We all have a curl pattern. Coils are just tighter curls which are just smaller waves who just prefer not to be so straight! And that magical gel does not exist, it just embraces your curl pattern to do whatever it wants to do. A textured expert trained to #cutitkinky will give your curls the freedom to pop properly! #love #dreads #longhair #hairgrowth #naturalhairjourney #chair #makeup #hairstyle #kinkyhair #thecrownact #naturalandprofessional

Our hair (in all of its versatility) is amazingly beautiful, and it doesn’t always have to be “easy” to appreciate. The rich legacy of styles throughout our existence tells a wonderful story, and I’m proud to play my part, by passing the CROWN Act, to honor that history and ensure Black women, girls, and men, have lots of #HairLove. #blackhair #hair #thecrownact #crownact #naturalhair #selflove

Any one ever get nervous about switching up their hair or look as a professional? To be honest I used to. We have this very linear narrow view of professionalism and as a black woman you are often boxed in on how you can express yourself with hair. But now, nahhhhh, I don’t think twice about it. I use my hair as a form of expression and connection to myself, my culture, and my community. #blackdoctors #melanindoc #naturalhairdoctor #naturalhair #thecrownact #kinkycrown #protectivestyles

🔖 You ever came across a book that changed your life? This was it for me. 📚 . . . Majority of women grow up to think that they should never fall and get hurt, then keep going until they learn. Or many of us women think constructive criticism at work is at the end of “perfect performance review.” Have we ever taken a second and think a form a bravery is showing our natural hair? @reshmasaujani really hit a nerve here for me when #curlyhair made a feature here. Since finishing @bravenotperfect , I have learn to accept failure as a part of my JOURNEY and it has later became a new STRENGTH. My curls are part of me and since 2016, I refused to let society dictate how my hair should look. My curls are not only part of a ‘modern’ standard of beauty; it is also part of a honoring a legacy where I came from. This is not just for photos and selfies, this is to have the courage to be myself wherever I am. Unfortunately, not all of us will demonstrate this courage in this lifetime, but I’m one of the few who will rock her curls no matter where I am, especially in my corporate workplace. If anyone ever has has an issue with your natural hair at work especially in NYC, they can refer to NYC Commission on Human Rights Legal Enforcement Guidance on Race Discrimination on the Basis of Hair. Yes, non-curlies — hair discrimination has gone so far that one of the greatest cities in the world had to establish a law against people discriminating beautiful, natural, God-given, hair. Eventually this will be rolled out nationwide called #TheCrownAct . . . . . . . . . . 🥂Here’s to all of us, non-perfectionists. Because even on Instagram, no one is perfect or has the perfect life. We have our path and timelines. Don’t let the filters fool you. ☝🏽 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #yogacurlsnyc #bravenotperfect #sundaybooks #sundayinspiration #bravery #actsofcourage #hairlove #curlsarebeautiful #beautybloggers #curlybloggers #curlsmovement #failureispartofsuccess #thejourneycontinues #curlyhairjourney #issajourney #knowyourrights #hairmovement #hairtransformation #girlswhocode #girlsintechnology #knowyourhairrights #knowyourworth

The Crown Act - A small victory in the fight against systemic oppression. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ California Governor Gavin Newsom has added “hair discrimination” to the categories of discrimination prohibited in the state, signing the measure into law after both the State Assembly and Senate voted unanimously to pass it. The bill protects “braids, twists, and locks” from employers and school administrators who might otherwise seek to impose “Eurocentric norms” on the hair of black Californians, and makes California the first state in the nation to enshrine such protections in law. #thecrownact #hairprotection #blackwomen #protectourwomen #blackgirlhairstyles #gabrielunion #hairtooblack ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Yesterday was one of the proudest days of my life as an impact strategist! Something I’ve been working on tirelessly for almost two years came to fruition. My two very good friends, who always show up for me, did so again! Senator Cory Booker and Congressman Cedric Richmond served as the leads for, and introduced the CROWN Act in both chambers of Congress! I’m beyond honored to lead the legislative advocacy efforts for this nationwide movement, and to work with a small yet mighty group of sistas to outlaw hair discrimination!

As I continue to learn what works best for my hair, I take notes on the results. I used less gel and I did not use a deep conditioner. I wanted to ensure big for fluffiness by Day #5 and I believe I will be there! Keeping these visual notes helps me to see which combinations peak on what days in the cycle between wash and goes. #naturalhair #hair #protectivestyles #curlyhair #naturalhairstyles #blackgirlmagic #braids #healthyhair #teamnatural #naturalandprofessional #thecrownact

@repcedric: Today, I introduced the CROWN Act with my colleagues in the House and Senate because it’s past time for Black women and men to stop being treated differently and discriminated against all because of how they decide to wear their hair. We all know that personal appearance is no indicator of key performance or success, yet too many incidents preventing men and women from education, work, sports, and other means were continuing to make headlines. I want women and men of all ages to celebrate their hair with confidence at all times. I’m proud of my colleagues for joining me in this necessary effort. @corybooker @repbarbaralee @repmarciafudge @ayannapressley #CROWNAct #CROWNcoalition #theCROWNact

My SISTER with CURLY HAIR just won @missusa 😂🤣😂🎉🎉🎉 Congrats attorney @chesliekryst @missncusa !!! Okay she’s not really my sister, but we have the same hair!!!! 😂😂😂So we *could* be related!!🤣🤷🏻‍♀️😂 . I was one of the first women to wear my hair curly at Miss USA while competing. Mine got so big from the humidity that some ladies backstage started putting a curling iron on it for me...out of love!! It wasn’t considered “acceptable” back then!! So this natural, curly, gorgeous hair on a Miss USA means a LOT to me personally!!! . I was bullied for my hair growing up...even the principal called me “The Bush”. . @michaelapereira @oprah were the first women I could ever relate to on TV who wore their hair curly!! Watching them on TV made me realize that MAYBE I had a shot at it too!! So cheers to all my curly haired sisters out there!!! Ms. @Oprah and @michaelapereira THANK YOU for daring to be YOU!!!! You changed my life for the better because of it!!!💓💓💓 . . #Progress #Ihaveadream #curlygirl #mixedme #curlyhair #missusa #missuniverse #BeTheChange @tanikaray @shayzon @morgankradford @beyonce @liavalenciakey @devinebeaute @susiecastillo #thecrownact #missuniverse2019 #atlanta #atl #atlantahairstylist #atlhairstylist #hairstyles #blackhair
