Thomas R. Kline School of Law Professor Wendy Greene has co-crafted C.R.O.W.N. Acts and other legal reforms to fight grooming discrimination. Wendy has devoted her professional life’s work to advancing, racial, color, and gender equality in workplaces and beyond. Her “Free The Hair” campaign has attracted global awareness of this important conversation — and is helping to forge a new path for generations to come. Because advocacy can’t wait.
