Updated: Jun 14

SB 32 prohibits hair discriminated against African-Americans with braids, locks, twists and other natural hairstyles or textures.

Rep. Frank Cooke, was one of the many legislators who sponsored the Delaware Crown Act, the anti-discrimination bill designed to protect hairstyles traditionally associated with race.

SB 32 prohibits hair discriminated against African-Americans with braids, locks, twists and other natural hairstyles or textures. In 2019, a study found that Black women are 80% more likely to change their natural hair to meet social norms or expectations at work.


Ultimately, the measure legally protects all people after the General Assembly took a big stand against any type of hair discrimination.

SB 32 was signed into law in 2021.
