John Graham — A Life of Risk Taking


A Foreign Service Officer for fifteen years, John Graham was in the middle of the revolution in Libya and the war in Vietnam. For three years in the mid-seventies, he was a member of NATO’s top-secret Nuclear Planning Group, then served as a foreign policy advisor to Senator John Glenn. At the United Nations, he was deeply involved in U.S. initiatives in Southern Africa, South Asia and Cuba.

Outside government, John’s been part of major peace-building efforts in the Middle East and Africa. Since 1983 he’s been a leader of the Giraffe Heroes Project, an international organization moving people to stick their necks out for the common good and giving them the tools to succeed. His focus now is on inspiring and training political activists in places like Nigeria, Nepal, India, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Sierra Leone and Egypt. Find out more at
