California Crown Law: News Anchors Open up About New Law

  • 18 May, 2020

Let’s Talk About Hair.

A new law went into effect on January 1, 2020, in California that will let people more freely wear their natural hair.

The Crown Law (Create a Respectful and Open Workplace for Natural Hair) prohibits discrimination against a person at work and at school based on their hairstyle and hair texture and that includes afros, braids, twists, and locks.

State Senator Holly Mitchell sponsored the law. She said that workplace and school rules that require race neutral grooming policies disproportionately affect people of color.

She cited an example from New Jersey last year when a high school wrestler was forced to cut off his dreadlocks or forfeit his match.

ABC7 News anchors Kumasi Aaron and Jobina Fortson have dealt with having to straighten or hide their natural hair throughout their careers in journalism. They shared some insights about what they have faced.
