One of the most important goals of CCA is to promote social acceptance of children and adults with facial differences. It usually only takes one conversation to help someone understand that we are more alike than different.
We believe that in order for the general public to accept facial, physical, and other differences, they must see and understand them. Furthermore, is important to see positive role models with facial differences in the media.
We encourage our families and friends to contact your local TV and radio stations, plus podcasters and bloggers you follow, to schedule interviews and awareness stories in your local communities. Here’s a handy guide on how to pitch your story.
Finally, our Wonder #ChooseKind school education program helps students with facial differences become change agents and advocates for social awareness and acceptance in their schools and cities.
Remember, each September is Craniofacial Acceptance Month and there are variety of events scheduled to help you advocate for acceptance.
