Ann Medlock

Founder, Giraffe Heroes Project

Writer Ann Medlock founded the nonprofit <a href="">Giraffe Heroes Project</a> to honor people who stick their necks out for the common good and to encourage others to follow their lead. Her driving force is a deep concern for the health of the body politic, which she is certain will die without engaged, courageous citizens. <br /> <br /> Giraffe Heroes <a href="">materials for kids</a> are in kindergarten-through-high-school classes in all 50 states and in American schools abroad. <br /> <br /> Medlock blogs at the <a href="">Project’s website</a> and at <a href="">her own</a>. She’s been speechwriter to US politicians and to the Aga Khan, and has spoken, written and/or taught in Kobe, Kinshasa, Saigon, Beijing and Moscow as well as in Chicago, Washington DC and New York City. <br /> <br /> She now lives, leads the Giraffe team, and writes (heroes’ profiles, blogs, opeds, <a href="">fiction</a> and <a href="">poetry</a>) and on an island in the Pacific Northwest.
