Maryland Consumer Protection Bill Becomes Law


PCPC continues to advance anti-discrimination legislation across the U.S. As a member of the CROWN (Creating a Respectful and Open World for Natural Hair) Coalition, PCPC actively supports the CROWN Act, which passed the U.S. House of Representatives and is now law in seven states and pending in more than 20 others.


PCPC works collaboratively with the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery Association (ASDSA), American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), and more than 60 other health, education and parent groups to support legislation that specifically allows sunscreens to be used in schools. To date, 26 states and Washington, D.C., have passed the “SUNucate” model.
