The Ruth Institute, now part of NOM, was founded by Jennifer Roback Morse and its tagline is “One Man, One Woman For Life.”

Dr. Morse focuses much of her work on young people, hosting student conferences to make support of traditional marriage “cool.”

According to, Dr. Morse is featured in a video testimony for the group Better Courts Now that aims to replace four Democratic judges in California with social conservatives. Also serving on Better Courts Now are Ron Prentice, the campaign chairman for Prop. 8, and Jim Garlow, the lead pastor of the Skyline Church in La Mesa, CA, in San Diego County. Garlow and his church played a vocal, leading role in passing Prop. 8 in 2008.

Among the Institute’s academic advisors are Lynn Wardle, a prominent Mormon lawyer and member of the Federalist Society, and Pat Fagan,  Senior Fellow Director at the Family Research Council.
