This year we conducted 34 community classes on a variety of end-of-life topics. Far and away our most popular class in 2023 was Funeral Options 2.0. This session is part of our Ducks in a Row series and teaches you your rights and your options when it comes to funerals. Attendees love that we peel back the curtain, helping them learn what to expect when it comes time to arrange for someone's care. If you haven't had a chance to attend this class yet, check out this recording from a recent session we did in partnership with the Seattle Public Library.
A real highlight of PMA's year was getting to conduct our Ducks in a Row series in Chinese for the first time. We can't wait to offer the series in more languages, making sure we can empower even more Washingtonians to make informed decisions in their quest for affordable, dignified deathcare.
Getting to do in-person events again has been such a wonderful way to reconnect with our community. We had a fabulous time with you at our annual fundraiser (The After Party)! PMA members, staff, and volunteers gorged themselves on treats, were dazzled by legendary cellist Lori Goldston and contortionist Ava Marie, and had a grand old time playing carnival games in their finest Halloween costumes.
