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.
FEW 2020 started on Monday May 18, 2020 and ended on Friday May 22, 2020. At time the Many Faces of Moebius Syndrome was not part of FEI, but since this cause is near and dear to our hearts we decided to get involved at the last minute. We reached out to our global Moebius syndrome community for support. They quickly answered our call. Twelve people from four countries sent in videos which we originally posted to our Many Faces of Moebius Syndrome Facebook page. The videos had the #FaceEquality and #FaceEqualityWeek hastag on them so everyone interested in #FaceEqualityWeek would see them. Whenever possible we linked the videos to our Community Story page so others could learn more about Moebius Syndrome.
We also asked our community for photos we could use to promote Face Equality Week. Some of our community sent them to us and others gave us digital permission to use ones on their Facebook page. We received 50 photos. To view the photo go to page 2. Click on the name under the photo to read their story.
