Adoptee Tribute: Representing Over 900 Names of the Denied

Jeff Hancock and the Denied Necklace


Beginning in 2009, ARC organizer and volunteer, Jeff Hancock began carrying names of people who support the Adoptee Rights Demonstration.


The names are those Adoptees, parents, family members and supporters who want to join us, but are not  able to physically be at that year's Adoptee Rights Day.



Jeff has promised to create this tribute each year until either all 50 states unseal and restore OBC access to Adult Adoptees or dies doing so.

Wearing the Name Necklace

This has become a wildly popular labor of love and this year held almost 1000 names of those denied their civil rights through outdated adoption laws.

It is a great honor to wear the necklace.

The Denied Adoptee Names to Date

There are 949 individual name tags on the necklace this past year at the 2012 Chicago Adoptee Rights Demonstration. Some tags do have two name on them.

  2. thanks so much to Jeff Hancock and kudos to all ARC for carrying our names; truly a labor of love that only one within the adoption community fully understands!

  3. I think this an amazing tribute to all adoptees who have struggled or are currently struggling to find closure in their search. I would love for my name to be included on next years list as I am an adoptee currently searching for my birth family, struggling not only with one state, but two. I was born in Hawaii, and my adoption was completed in Utah. Hawaii has my info. and is willing to share it, but because my adoption was filed in Utah they don't have record of the adoption and can't give me any information with out the adoption records and Utah is unwilling to provide them. If you ever decide to come to out West, I will be there!
    Thank you for all your hard work!

  5. This necklace idea is awesome. I wonder if it could be adapted to a website listing. Here's my attempt:
