Dear [recipient position will go here]
[recipient name will go here],
As your constituent, I am writing to thank you for your sincere action to make the CROWN Act law nationwide. We value your help to change the laws and set a right path to end the racial injustice of discrimination against people because of their hair.
The National Parents Union representing and advocating with nearly 18 million families across the nation strongly supports the the CROWN Act legislation to end hair discrimination. We recognize the importance this legislation has in ensuring that traits historically associated with race, such as hair texture and hairstyle, are protected from discrimination in the workplace and in K-12 public and charter schools.
The CROWN Act was first introduced in California in January 2019 by Senator Holly Mitchell (District 30) and signed into law by Governor Newsom on July 3, 2019. To date, 13 additional states have signed The CROWN Act or legislation inspired by the CROWN Act into law (New York, New Jersey, Virginia, Colorado, Washington, Maryland, Connecticut, Delaware, New Mexico, Nebraska, Nevada, Oregon, and Illinois). In addition, a total of 34 local municipalities combined have signed the CROWN Act to date.
The time is now to end hair discrimination in all 50 states. Thank you for taking action to pass the CROWN Act nationwide.
