Californian liberal policies is a daily and vital conversation in Californian lives. Hair discrimination is a long waited topic to be addressed.  According to this new proposed bill, there is no room for discrimination in California depending on how a person styles his/her hair. It’s called the ”crown Act.” 
**To this day, people of color across the country are fired, harassed, and consistently targeted for sporting dreadlocks, afros, and cornrows, among other natural styles. If and when passed, much like New York, the bill would make it illegal for employers to discriminate against anyone based on their hair, raising an important debate for the rest of the country where the racist tradition persists.
