Face Equality Week:
Face Equality Week was created by Face Equality International. A Craniofacial Organization in the United Kindom. Their slogan is: “Creating a world where everyone is treated fairly whatever their face looks like.” To learn more about them click here.
The Many Faces of Moebius Syndrome started promoting Face Equality Week in 2020. At that time, we were not part of Face Equality International. Shortly after we were contacted by Dr. James Partridge the founder of Face Equality International and asked if we would like to apply for membership in FEI. We received an email from Dr. Partridge the day before he died letting us know that the 8 founding member organizations of Face Equality International unanimously approved our membership.
Since this is our first official year as part of FEI, and to honor Dr. Partridge’s gift to us, we’ve worked extremely hard behind the scenes over the last couple of months to create our 2021 Face Equality Week campaign which we hope will be one of many steppingstones in making Face Equality a reality.
What is Face Equality Week? Simply put Face Equality Week is one week out of the year where many NGO’s and many ordinary people come together all around the world to stand as one with the strength and desire to make Face Equality for all a full-time reality.
The Many Faces of Moebius Syndrome is proud to support Face Equality International and their CEO Phyllida Swift. To learn more about FEI and our International Face Equality week click here.

We will be posting these photos throughout the week at scheduled times on all of our social media pages. Please share them and help us turn Face Equality week into a all year long reality.
