Legislative Initiatives

Morgantown NOW is currently reviewing different legislative initiatives to work on the upcoming 2022 legislative session.

The Katherine Johnson and Dorothy Vaughan Fair Pay Act

This bill would allow employees to discuss their wages with each other, forbid employers’ policies from penalizing employees for discussing pay, and also eliminate the requirement to provide salary history in hiring practices.

Ending Child Marriage

This bill increases the age of consent for marriage to 18.

CROWN Act (Create a Respectful and Open World for Natural hair)

This bill bans natural hair-based discrimination in schools and workplaces.
