We are thrilled to announce that this year's keynote speaker is none other than Ryan Bomberger, an Emmy Award-winning Creative Professional who founded The Radiance Foundation (TRF), a life-affirming 501 (c)(3), along with his wife Bethany. He is a broadcast media designer, producer, columnist, passionate factivist, international public speaker, and author of the powerful book Not Equal: Civil Rights Gone Wrong.
Ryan has a unique perspective of the innate nature of Purpose. Though he was conceived in rape, his biological mother courageously gave him a chance to live and the beautiful gift of adoption. His own life defies the myth of "the unwanted child," as he was adopted, loved, and has flourished.
Ryan was the creative force behind the first ad campaign to expose abortion's hugely disproportionate impact in the black community. The bold TooManyAborted.com billboards/web campaigns made an unexpected impact in the pro-life movement, receiving massive media coverage from The New York Times, USA Today, LA Times, CNN, MSNBC, the Associated Press, Washington Times, Fox News, ABC World News with Diane Sawyer, and across the blogosphere. The extensive media attention enabled The Radiance Foundation, and Ryan's personal story of adoption, to reach millions.
Working in conjunction with noted national civil rights leaders like Dr. Alveda King (niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.), Ryan is involved in national efforts to illuminate the human rights injustice of abortion. He and his wife Bethany met at a pregnancy resource center and have spent countless hours advocating on behalf of centers like Care Net.
It is with great joy and eager anticipation that we announce his role in our upcoming banquet, and we urge you to take a pen and mark that date on your calendar now, as this event promises to be a game changer.
Stay tuned for more details in the days ahead!
