Co-founders Angelica Dill and I, Trey Gordon, have signed up for ADA Coordinator Training conference in August. This conference is required if we want to become certified ADA Coordinators so that we can advocate the community through the ADA law. We’ll be sure to share our lessons and experiences with you all to support our communities!

 

Remember our funeral home letters that we wrote and sent online explaining about meeting and providing reasonable accommodations and to remind funeral homes about the ADA law? We’ve sent the letter to all funeral homes in Birmingham. We intend to send it out to all funeral homes all over the state. We’ve made it a priority to finish this—we want every funeral home to have this letter. We want to thank Beth Overland for translating the letter into ASL so that everyone has the option to read the letter or watch it instead via ASL. We want to make sure that everyone has access during their tough moments in their lives. You deserve access.
