As our nation continues to face inequality and injustice, we at Express Funeral Funding stand to further support the cease of racial discrimination, brutality and harassment of our black and minority communities.

Now more than ever, we must all commit to the acceptance of diversity and inclusion everywhere. Express Funeral Funding stands against the intolerance of humanity and in unity with the victims.

While our nation seeks solutions, we vow to help in this effort by supporting equality and raising even greater awareness to human dignity and justice amongst our colleagues and entire funeral family.

We will condemn intolerance and advocate for what is just and right.
