The truth that ALL LIVES MATTER is nothing new to the pro-life movement and certainly not to Tennessee Right to Life: unborn lives, newly born lives, elderly lives, disabled lives.  It is the mission of Tennessee Right to Life, and has been for more than 40 years, to advocate for the protection of the most vulnerable innocent human lives.

Ryan has a rather unique perspective of the innate nature of Purpose. His 
biological mother was raped yet courageously chose to continue the pregnancy, giving him Life. He was adopted as a baby and grew up in a loving, multi-racial Christian family of 15. With siblings of varying ethnicities, he grew up with a great appreciation for diversity. Ten of the thirteen children were adopted in this remarkable family. His life defies the myth of the “unwanted” child as he was adopted, loved and has flourished.

Today, he is an Emmy® Award-winning Creative Professional who founded The Radiance Foundation (TRF), a life-affirming 501(c)(3), along with his wife, Bethany.

They've made an unexpected impact in the pro-life movement with the bold billboard/web campaigns.  As the first pro-adoption themed ad campaign created to address the disproportionate impact of abortion in the black community, the effort received 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, seemingly, the entire 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 expose and defund Planned Parenthood by illuminating this human rights injustice. He has also traveled the country helping pregnancy help centers raise millions of dollars at fundraising events to support women and their children (born and unborn).

Because of his direct and uncompromising work, he and his Foundation have come under fire from big hitters including Planned Parenthood, the NAACP and the ACLU. Don’t miss this evening of inspiration.
