Unilever, the British multinational consumer goods company, recently announced it will donate £170,000 to black grassroots organizations to fight hair discrimination.
Dover, a Unilever brand, launched the CROWN UK Fund will receive these funds to invest in lack-led grassroots organizations and projects that aim to "eliminate barriers to progress for Black women and girls and driving for long-term systemic change." The funding will prioritize organizations with a strong focus on the empowerment of Black women and girls.
In addition, Dover also launched a new workshop through the Dove self-esteem project that facilitates discussions with teachers and school staff about hair discrimination in school. These workshops also aim to amend school policies that enforce hair discrimination.
