Funeral Directors United on Capitol Hill!
NFDA members from across America gathered once again in Washington, D.C. to advocate on behalf of funeral service. We met with members of Congress to discuss the issues, enjoyed an evening at the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum with special guest Robert J. O'Neill, former SEAL Team Six Leader, Naval Special Warfare Development Group, and paid homage with a wreath-laying at Arlington National Cemetery's Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
Participants on the Hill during the Advocacy Summit urged Congress to pass these key pieces of legislation that will help grieving families plan meaningful funerals for their loved ones:
- H.R. 497/S. 597: The BRAVE ACT – Burial Rights for America’s Veterans’ Efforts Act of 2019
- H.R. 1835: The Consensual Donation and Research Integrity Act of 2019
