Ryan Bomberger is an Emmy® Award-winning creative professional, international public speaker, columnist, and factivist. He is the author of the powerful books, Not Equal: Civil Rights Gone Wrong and She is She, a ground-breaking illustrated children’s book about identity. Ryan is the co-founder and Chief Creative Officer of RadianceFoundation.org, a life-affirming organization that illuminates that every human life has purpose.
As an adoptive father, Ryan has a rather unique perspective of the innate nature of purpose. He is one of ten children who were adopted in a diverse family of fifteen. Ryan earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing at Messiah University and a Master’s Degree in Communications at Regent University. Ryan was honored (along with his wife, Bethany) with the Alumni Christian Service Award from Messiah, and Ryan was given the Alumnus of the Year Award from Regent.
Ryan’s work has been officially denounced by the ACLU, Media Matters, Planned Parenthood and the NAACP, which means he must be doing something right. The pro-abortion NAACP sued Ryan and the Radiance Foundation for parodying the civil rights organization’s name, apparently forgetting that free speech is a civil right. After two years in federal court, the NAACP lost the landmark free speech case.
Ryan and his wife, Bethany, founded The Radiance Foundation to diligently research and creatively present challenging social issues through ad campaigns, multimedia talks, fearless journalism, and compassionate community outreaches. The Radiance Foundation’s work (including the first public ad campaign exposing abortion’s devastating impact in the Black community) has been extensively covered in The New York Times, Fox News, MSNBC, Breitbart, ABC News, The Washington Times, The Washington Post, The Christian Post, Newsweek, CNN, Townhall, EWTN, JET, LA Times, Yahoo News, National Review, and many more news outlets. From keynotes at renown locations like Harvard, Princeton, Columbia Law School, University of Notre Dame, Ireland’s Trinity College, March for Life DC, March for Life UK, Capitol Hill briefings, and hundreds more events here and abroad, Ryan is dedicated to building a culture that values Life in all of its stages.

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 diverse family of fifteen. Today, as an adoptee and father of four awesome kiddos (two of whom were adopted), he enjoys illuminating the intrinsic worth we all possess.
He and his amazing 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. Ryan’s work has received extensive media coverage by the NY Times, CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, Christian Post, EWTN, the Associated Press, Newsmax, Breitbart, ABC World News, Washington Times, Washington Post, NPR, World, NC Register, B.E.T., and many other news 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.
Ryan earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing at Messiah University and a Master’s Degree in Communications at Regent University.
