This training will focus on race discrimination based on hairstyle. It will cover the history of this type of discrimination and the Division on Civil Rights (DCR) investigation into a hairstyle-related incident at a high school wrestling match. It will also cover a guidance document issued by DCR explaining that race discrimination includes discrimination based on a trait inextricably intertwined or closely associated with race, such as hairstyle, and the CROWN Act, which codifies these protections into law in NJ and in other states.
NOTE: DCR does not allow participants to join a training if they arrive more than 30 minutes after the start time.
