According to a representative of the Crown Act, more states are moving to pass the law. "Thirteen additional states are considering the Crown Act and have either pre-filed, filed, or formally stated an intent to introduce their own anti-hair discrimination bills," a source tells Refinery29
. These states include Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and Wisconsin. "Cincinnati, Ohio and Montgomery County, Maryland have also passed the act in local and county municipalities," the representative told us. Texas, however, is noticeably missing from that list. You can help pass the Crown Act in your state by signing the Crown Coalition petition
and contacting your local representatives.
