NATIONAL ORGANIZATION FOR MARRIAGE
WELCOMES ORSON SCOTT CARD TO ITS BOARD OF DIRECTORS

(Princeton, NJ) – Orson Scott Card, a distinguished novelist, a professor of writing and literature at Southern Virginia University, and a columnist, recently joined the board of directors of the National Organization of Marriage (NOM).

"We’re extremely honored that Orson Scott Card has joined with NOM in our shared mission to protect marriage and the faith communities that sustain it," said Maggie Gallagher, president of NOM, "He is one of the great science fiction writers of our time and a real voice of courage and intellect on behalf of marriage."

NOM also expressed its appreciation to Matt Holland, one of the founding board members of NOM, who recently stepped down when he was appointed president of Utah Valley University.

"I regret that time constraints do not permit me to continue on the board," said Holland, "I'm appreciative of all that NOM does to protect marriage and religious liberty."
