International Face Equality Week

International Face Equality Week 2020

 

People with facial disfigurements often experience low self-esteem in the global ‘look-perfect’ culture, being isolated and friendless, facing teasing, ridicule and staring in public places, low expectations in school, problems getting work, discrimination in the workplace, abuse on social media and stereotyping in the media just because of the way they look. In many countries, disfigurement goes hand in hand with poverty, prejudice and exclusion.

That’s why, each year as an alliance of global NGOs supporting people with facial differences, we come together for International Face Equality Week – a global campaign to highlight the issues facing people with facial differences, and to advocate for a better, fairer world for people who look different.

Please like, share and follow the campaign across social media @FaceEqualityInt #FaceEquality
