Bill Would Prohibit Discrimination Due To Hairstyle

It’s a call to end racial discrimination of certain hairstyles in the workplace. Asia Tennille is an account executive at the Michigan ad agency Campbell Ewald, which is getting behind a bill that’s in the state Legislature to amend the Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act. She spoke with Michigan News Network about the need for the legislation, telling them the bill is about hairstyles like Bantu knots. State Representative Sarah Anthony introduced House Bill 48-11 in July 2019. Tennille and Campbell Ewald say they’re supporting the legislation to prevent students and athletes from being suspended and employees from being fired.
