Talented Teen Club Hosts CROWN Act Event In West Palm Beach

Attendees celebrate natural hair at the CROWN Act Event in West Palm Beach.

The Talented Teen Club and key sponsors the City of West Palm Beach, Wellington Regional Medical Center and others held the CROWN Act Event hosted in West Palm Beach by Salon Café on Saturday, June 1.

The event was held to celebrate National CROWN Day, focused on unity and empowerment, bringing leaders and entrepreneurs together with leading HR officials. The weather was fantastic, and the student band from Dr. Joaquín García High School was exceptional, as were the community of entrepreneurs and student leaders from the Talented Teen Club.

The organizers thank everyone for their support. The nonprofit provides scholarships and resources to help Talented Teen Club students throughout the year and were given a proclamation for the CROWN Act Event by State Sen. Bobby Powell.

National Crown Day is a holiday commemorating the first signing of the Crown Act legislation in California in 2019. The act aims to “Create a Respectful and Open World for Natural Hair” (CROWN).

The Call of Action, put together by the students, will help make a difference in the 2024-25 school year. This includes: embrace and celebrate your natural hair; educate others about the importance of the CROWN Act; and show solidarity with the movement by proudly wearing your CROWN.
