My Hair, My Crown
In 2023, the Commission launched the My Hair, My CROWN workshop, based on the DOVE Self-Esteem project curriculum which focuses on appearance pressures, stereotypes, and self-esteem. The workshop was offered to community partners – engaging 6 organizations and reaching over 60 girls.
The workshop features interactive activities such as a screening of the Hair Love video, a love letter to Hair exercise, and discussions on: Hair and beauty Stereotypes, Hair Beliefs and experiences, and Bullying and building “CROWN Confidence”. While learning how to advocate for themselves participants also explore the meaning of equity along with information on The Crown Act law and protections against discrimination.
