Are you ready?! The 2nd annual National CROWN Day is July 3rd, 2021! The CROWN Coalition is working to end black hair discrimination in the workplace and schools. Some states have signed the CROWN Act into law, but we still have states who haven't. While the work to get all 50 states on board must continue, today we take a moment to celebrate our beautiful black hair independence.
Below are the virtual activities The CROWN Coalition (and their partners) have planned for the 2nd annual Naitional CROWN Day. Hope you can participate in some of the activities and #passthecrown.
