"Transparency is seen as the antidote to corruption because secrecy is, if not its cause, then a necessary precondition."
- American Journalist Heather Brooke
What We Believe
We believe that laws, rules and regulations should, first and foremost, serve and promote the well-being of those who are directly affected by them. We strongly oppose the commodification of infants, children, and all human beings, including vulnerable mothers experiencing an unplanned or crisis pregnancy.
The Coalition for Truth and Transparency in Adoption (CTTA) was founded with a vision to repeal and replace antiquated, unjust laws rooted in secrecy and shame. We work to meet the urgent need to train and equip advocates, and secure funding for successful initiatives nationwide.
CTTA is a 501(c)(4) organization with deep roots in longtime advocacy and activism, dedicated to creating healthier outcomes, just laws and transparent, ethical practices and records access in the areas of relinquishment, adoption and foster youth.
Though we are a new legal entity, our extensive network of proven, seasoned advocates, attorneys, lobbyists, current and former legislators, and academic subject matter experts extends nationally and internationally.
