Protective Natural Hairstyles Need Protection in the Work Place

It's 2019 and protective natural hairstyles are now, finally, "protected in the work place."  It feels weird to even report that it is now okay to wear ones hair in it's natural state and not miss out on employment opportunities because of it.

The Senate Judiciary Committee passed a bill by Sen. Holly J. Mitchell, D-Los Angeles that amends the Fair Employment and Housing Act to prohibit employers from enforcing purportedly “race neutral” grooming policies that disproportionately impact persons of color to end a centuries-long history of racial discrimination based on hairstyles.

While fededal anti-discrimination laws explicitly defend the choice to wear an Afro, they are silent with regard to braids, locs, and twists, known collectively as “protective hairstyles,” and commonly worn by Black women and men.

Thanks to this bill men and women are now protected when wearing protective styles in the work place.
