Ryan Sorba is an author, columnist, frequent political t.v. show guest, and conservative political activist. Ryan is currently serving as Chairman of the Young Conservatives of California (YCC).

Prior to YCC, Ryan served three years as National Director at the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT). During this time, Ryan was also elected Chairman of the California chapter of the Young Americans for Freedom (YAF). Prior to CFACT and YAF, Ryan served two years as the National Director of Membership and Campus Leadership for the Richard and Helen DeVos Freedom Center at the Intercollegiate Studies Institute (ISI) in Wilmington, Delaware, a position first held by William F. Buckley Jr.

During his time at ISI, Ryan recruited 13,876 new members in a single year, more than doubling the Institute's 55 year annual membership recruitment record. Between ISI, Li, CFACT, YAF, and YCC Ryan has helped found or maintain 102 independent conservative clubs on college campuses nationwide, a partial list of those clubs can be viewed below.
In 2009, Ryan participated in the now famous undercover ACORN investigation along with James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles. The investigation led John Boehner to introduce H.R. 3571, the Defund ACORN Act, which was eventually adopted as part of H.R. 3221, the Student Aid and Fiscal Responsibility Act of 2009.

The passage of the bill which defunded ACORN led the organization into bankruptcy. ACORN received more than $53 million in direct funding from the federal government between 1994 and 2009, and likely received substantially more indirectly through states and localities that receive federal block grants.The investigation was widely acclaimed as a huge victory for American tax payers. When the ACORN video was released, Glenn Beck mistook  mistook Ryan Sorba for "Jim the Acorn Housing Advisor" on FOX News. Ryan was eventually vindicated.

In February 2010, fresh off the ACORN investigation, Ryan gave his well-known 2010 CPAC Speech. During the speech Ryan condemned CPAC for bringing a left-wing homosexual activist organization called GOProud to the event.

The invitation of GOProud to CPAC was representative of 1960's era YAF infighting between Libertarians and Traditionalists. By 2010, the Libertarians who had been running CPAC had purged many traditionalists from positions of influence. Ryan's speech however, sounded the alarm on this issue to the broader conservative movement which had been largely ignorant of the insidious takeover that had been taking place right under their noses.

Although Ryan was cheered by some audience members, he was also booed by others, which was no surprise, since it was composed largely of socially liberal Ron Paul supporters -not traditional conservatives.

The speech however, became the catalyst for a movement to remove the stubbornly libertarian minded David Keene from his position as Chairman of the American Conservative Union (ACU), the organization which organizes CPAC each year. As the organization's Chairman and as an ex-YAFer, Keene was chiefly responsible for the Libertarian take-over of CPAC.

The following year (2011), Keene was removed as Chairman of CPAC for a variety of reasons, including financial mismanagement, and controversies surrounding groups like GOProud as well as other socially liberal activists like Grover Norquist and Suhail Kahn,.

Ryan considers David Keene's removal as Chairman of CPAC as one of the most important victories he was a part of during his young career as an activist: "While building concervatives clubs on college campuses and defunding ACORN were extremely important, removing Keene will change the direction of the Conservative movement as a whole, for the next 20 years." he says. "If you see social conservatives become more influential in the next ten years, Keene's removal from his position as Chairman of CPAC will be a big part of the reason for why."

Pro-family activist and Loudoun County, Virginia Supervisor Eugene Delgaudio had this to say:

"Ryan Sorba changed history. He was there first being critical of Grover Norquist and anyone else at CPAC who sold out. He called statist liberals what they were: 'statist liberals,' who wanted government power and money, for play at CPAC. He condemned them first. He condemned so-called 'libertarians' who sought broad new federal powers because of their 'sexual orientation.' Against all of them, Sorba stood like a stone wall.

Later in 2010, Ryan was approached by CNN. He was asked by producers Abbie Boudreau and Scott Zamost to appear in CNN's 2010 Documentary Right on the Edge,which documented six prominent young conservative activists taking on public corruption and the mainstream media, including: Ryan Sorba, James O'Keefe, Hannah Giles, Lila Rose, Christian Hartsock, and Jason Mattera. The show was aired multiple times and was a huge success.

In December 2010, Ryan helped orchestrate another widely successful undercover investigation on United Nations Delegates at the "COP 16" Conference on Climate Change in Cancun, Mexico. During this investigation, Ryan worked with Lord Christopher Monckton, 3rd Viscount Monckton of Brenchley and young film-maker Christian Hartsock. With the aid of the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT), the trio exposed leftists as willing to help "destabilize" the United States Economy and "ban" Di-hydrogen Monoxide (aka water). The Climate Kooks video can be seen here.

Ryan Sorba also played a small roll in helping Lila Rose's now famous pro-life organization, Live Action, get started. He appeared in one of the groups early publications which can be seen here. Live Action went on to conduct multiple ACORN-style investigations into Planned Parenthood, which eventually led to the organization being defunded to the tune of $300 million by Congress, in Febuary 2011, and more importantly, innumerable innocent infant's lives were saved. Later, in 2015, David Daleiden, a Live Action trained investigator, released a hugely successful 12 part video investigation into the harvesting of unborn baby's body parts by Planned Parenthood and various corporations. The work of pro-life activists nationwide eventually led to the overturning of Roe v Wade in 2021.

Over the years, Ryan has appeared in various independent films like The Lives of Better Men, by Christian Hartsock, the independent political music videos Victicrat and The Landreiu Dance, along with James O'Keefe, the founder and chairman of Project Veritas. 

Ryan has also appeared on various different television shows over the years, like FOX News's "The Glenn Beck Show," Comedy Central's "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," MSNBC's "Keith Olberman," and "The Howard Stern Show." He has also appeared on CSPAN and, as mentioned, CNN. In 2014, Ryan Sorba appeared on HLN's "On Call with Dr. Drew" as a recurring guest about 12 times. He was also a repeat guest and a guest host on "America Trend's with Dr. Gina," between 2014 and 2017, which appeared on the channel YouToo America. Ryan has also been a guest many times on the One America New's Network, on shows like "The Rick Amato Show," "Tipping Point with Tommi Lehren" and "Tipping Point with Liz Wheeler." He has also appeared on "The Ed Shultz Show" multiple times.
Ryan Sorba graduated from California State University, San Bernardino (CSUSB) with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology in 2007. During this time he founded the CSUSB chapter of the College Republicans. Taking time off from school in 2006 he helped found 22 independent Conservative clubs on college campuses in areas surrounding Boston, Massachusetts and 8 in Southern California working as a Field Representative for the Campus Leadership Program, at the Leadership Institute, which is headquartered in Arlington, Virginia.

Ryan has given numerous lectures on college campuses nationwide on subjects such as The History of the Conservative Intellectual Movement Since, 1945, and on the subject of his forthcoming book The “Born Gay” Hoax, which he hopes will one day serve as a blueprint to help conservatives win the culture war. A published rough-draft can be seen here.

Ryan currently resides in Orange County, California.
