It’s Now Illegal to Discriminate Against New Yorkers with Natural Hair

If you are a Black woman who lives and works in the corporate environment in New York City, you can now wear your natural textured hair to work without fear of retribution.

“Bias against the curly textured hair of people of African descent is as old as this country and a form of race-based discrimination,” said NYC first lady Chirlane McCray, who is a proud member of Team Natural.
