Event Summary


Hoffman Estates (IL) Chapter of the Links, Incorporated and Loyola School of Law Center for Business Law present
Know Your Rights - The Origins and Expansion of the C.R.O.W.N. Act
Creating a respectful and Open World for Natural Hair

The C.R.O.W.N. Act discussion will take a look at the national movement to protect our right to express ourselves through the hairstyles we wear. Advocating for a national CROWN Act is one way to use the influence & power of our words (written & spoken) to raise awareness, motivate action, & achieve change that improves our environment (reducing stressors such as discrimination) & mental well-being.

Speaker - Wendy Greene

Director of the Center For Law, Policy and Social Action 

Professor Of Law

A visionary, Professor Greene is the architect of two new legal constructs recognized within anti-discrimination law theory and praxis: “misperception discrimination” and “grooming codes discrimination.” Her internationally recognized publications in these areas have shaped the enforcement stance of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), administrative law judges, federal courts, and civil rights organizations in civil rights cases. The 11th Circuit and Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals endorsed Professor Greene’s published definition of race as a legal authority on the social construction of race and as a practicable definition for constitutional decision-making respectively.
