Restoring Families’ Right to Choose: the call for funeral legislation change in America was co-written by Josh Slocum of the Funeral Consumers Alliance and Lee Webster of the NHFA to educate the public and their policymakers at all levels of government about the issues that inform current laws and policies affecting home funeral families. And it lays out a vision in clear language for legislative funeral reform in America that empowers families while addressing the needs of government. Plus learn how to navigate and overcome noncompliant institutional policies.
Knowing that all Americans have the right to care for their own in their homes after death is the first step. But what happens when following the legal process still leads to roadblocks in institutions and businesses that have policies that are not in sync with the law? What to Do When Home Funeral Rights Are Challenged contains a concise list of potential obstacles and how to anticipate and resolve issues quickly.
Also included in the new version is an updated Quick Guide to Home Funerals by State that spells out exactly what the requirements are for state government restrictions on home funeral families, refrigeration and embalming requirements and timing, mandatory waiting periods to cremate, what states compel families to hire a funeral director, and much more.
