Minnesota may be the next state to enact a version of the Create a Respectful and Open Workplace for Natural Hair (CROWN) Act. States across the country have been slowly adopting the CROWN Act, or their own version of it, over the past three years.

The CROWN Act was first enacted in California in 2019. The law expanded the definition of “race” under California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act and in California’s Education Code to include natural hair textures and protective styles, such as braids, locs, twists, and knots.
