Take heed, warns NAACP, if Missouri is on your travel itinerary

Civil rights group issues travel advisory after law passed that makes it more difficult for workers to prove unlawful discrimination

The NAACP is circulating a travel advisory after the state passed a law that the Missouri conference says allows for legal discrimination, reports CNN.

The advisory was issued after Senate Bill 43 — which makes it more difficult for employees to prove their protected class, like race or gender, directly led to unlawful discrimination — passed through the Missouri Legislature in June. Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens signed it into law soon after.

The Missouri NAACP State Conference called the legislation a “Jim Crow Bill.”
