Print Friendly, PDF & Email

State Senator Sal DiDomenico (second from the right) joined his colleagues and community leaders for the signing of The CROWN Act by Governor Charlie Baker in his State House office. Special guests included Mya and Deanna Cook – the sisters who were the inspiration for this legislation that prohibits the denial of employment and educational opportunities in places of work, schools and school-related organizations because of hair texture or protective hairstyles, such as braids, locks and twists, used by people by color. DiDomenico was one of the bill’s lead sponsors and helped shepherd the legislation through the Senate.
