The Minnesota House is advancing a bill that would protect Minnesotans from discrimination based on how they wear their hair. The CROWN Act includes a definition of race that is inclusive of natural hair textures and styles such as braids, lots, and twists, breaking down barriers for Black Minnesotans. The bill would make it clear that no one should be kept from a job or school because how their hair naturally grows. The bill now moves to the Senate, where it faces stronger challenges.
