Hair Discrimination is Now Illegal in Akron

Tara Mosley-Samples is an Akron councilwoman who has been serving the city for seven years.

Akron City Council recently passed legislation making hair discrimination illegal.


The legislation, also known as The CROWN Act was presented by samples and councilman Rich Swirsky almost a year ago.


"Say, if they fire you or tell you that you need to change your hair color, it’s like telling someone they need to change their, I don’t know, the color of their skin. This is something that is near and dear to them. They now will have the opportunity here in our city to go to our Akron Civil Rights Commission and file a complaint stating they were discriminated against because of the style of their hair or the natural state of their hair."


According to the official national CROWN Act campaign, CROWN stands for “create a respectful and open world for natural hair.”


Samples hopes that other cities throughout the state will adopt the CROWN Act.


The Crown Act Makes it Cool to do WHATEVER YOU WANT With your Hair.
