Free Webinar: Hair Discrimination and the NJ Law Against Discrimination
Hair Discrimination and the NJ Law Against Discrimination
This training will focus on race discrimination based on hairstyle. It will cover the history of this type of discrimination and the Division on Civil Rights (DCR) investigation into a hairstyle-related incident at a high school wrestling match. It will also cover a guidance document issued by DCR explaining that race discrimination includes discrimination based on a trait inextricably intertwined or closely associated with race, such as hairstyle, and the CROWN Act, which codifies these protections into law in NJ and in other states.
