. Miami Beach adopts ordinance banning hairstyle discrimination « JO LEE MAGAZINE

NBC NEWS – The Miami Beach City Commission voted unanimously to prohibit discriminatory practices “based on the texture or style of a person’s hair,” the city said in a news release Wednesday. “The new ordinance applies in cases where hair is commonly associated with a particular race or national origin, such as Black communities,” it said. “It’s unacceptable in 2022 that Black Americans and other minorities still face discrimination based on something so trivial as whether or not they have textured or curly hair,” Miami Beach Vice Mayor Alex Fernandez said in a statement.
