New Business Guidelines to Stop Racial Discrimination Against Natural Hair

I've been there-- told my natural hair was "unprofessional" so it's great to see a new step in the right direction!

The New York City Commission on Human Rights has created new guidelines related to racial discrimination based on a person's hair or hairstyle at work, in school or in public spaces.

According to #NYTimes the guidelines give legal 'recourse' to individuals who have, in any way, experienced harassment, punishment, demotion, or termination because of the texture or style of their hair.
