PEOPLE'S MEMORIAL Programs
People’s MemorialTM envisions a future where all of us have information about and access to death care options that reflect our personal values and resources.
People's Memorial provides education to all consumers through our website, public speaking and educational brochures. We are the go-to resource for consumers who have questions or problems with funeral arrangements.
For those who choose to join the organization, we simplify the process of funeral planning, by offering the opportunity to put their wishes in writing and be guaranteed economical prices and no sales pressure at more than 25 funeral homes statewide.
People's Memorial is also the voice for consumers through the governmental and legislative process. We advocate for the needs of funeral consumers at both the state funeral and cemetery board as well at the state and local level.
Recent Successes and Current Challenges
People's Memorial recently initiated our "Got Your Ducks In a Row?" workshops to educate all consumers about the importance of planning for end-of-life. These events are free to the public and include information about how to make sure your wishes are honored so that you may have the kind of death and funeral arrangements that you desire as well as make sure that your possessions are distributed according to your wishes. We include a variety of forms and resources to make it easy to plan and be prepared. The workshops have been hugely successful and been overbooked nearly every time. We will conduct four "Ducks" Workshops in 2013--one in Spokane, two in Seattle, in addition to a much requested workshop addressing the unique needs of the LGBT community in Seattle.
