Ryan Bomberger is an Emmy® Award-winning creative professional, citizen journalist, factivist, and author of the powerful book, Not Equal: Civil Rights Gone Wrong. He is also the co-founder of RadianceFoundation.org, a life-affirming organization based on the belief that every human life has purpose. Ryan has a rather unique perspective of the innate nature of purpose. He is one of ten children, who were adopted and loved, in a multi-racial family of fifteen. Today, as an adoptee and adoptive father, he enjoys illuminating the intrinsic worth we all possess.
He and his wife, Bethany, founded The Radiance Foundation to extensively research and creatively present challenging social issues (abortion, adoption, fatherlessness, poverty, LGBT activism, judicial activism, racism, free speech, and religious liberty) in the context of God-given Purpose. Ryan has keynoted at renown locations and events including the UN, Harvard, Princeton, Columbia University, Ireland’s Trinity College (home of the world’s oldest Philosophical Society), University of Notre Dame, Values Voter Summit, the March for Life (DC), Canada’s March for Life, UK March for Life, Capitol Hill briefings and hundreds more events here and abroad.
The Radiance Foundation launched the first public ad campaign to address the hugely disproportionate impact of abortion in the black community—TooManyAborted.com. Ryan’s work has received extensive media coverage by the NY Times, CNN, MSNBC, the Associated Press, Breitbart, ABC World News, Washington Times, Huffington Post, NPR, B.E.T., and many other mainstream and online media outlets.
He’s been denounced by Planned Parenthood, the ACLU, George Soros’ Media Matters for America, the NAACP and many other liberal organizations and politicians. He was even sued by the nation’s leading civil rights group because he parodied their name in an article exposing the NAACP’s radical pro-abortion position and actions, accurately calling them the “National Association for the Abortion of Colored People.” After a two-year battle in federal court, Ryan and Radiance prevailed in this free speech case.
As Chief Creative Officer of The Radiance Foundation, Ryan is passionate about building a culture that values Life in all of its stages.
