2021 Oregon Legislative Agenda

Our 2021 Legislative Agenda:

  • Improve maternal health outcomes for Black and Native Oregonians
  • Pass the CROWN Act in Oregon
  • Ensure better data equity through the Voter Access Act

Oregon needs the CROWN Act

The CROWN Act (HB 2935) prohibits discrimination based on race-based hairstyles by extending statutory protection to hair texture and protective styles such as braids, locs, twists, and knots in the workplace and public schools.
