Grandmother, Origami Expert,
Jo Wharton, Board Member
Jo Wharton was born in Dallas and is a graduate of SMU. She was involved in the women's movement in the 1960's and has continued to promote equality and justice for women.
She was research assistant for Peacemakers' International Women's Peace Conference in 2007 and has worked for peace ever since.
Origami Peace Cranes are her passion and her website is http://www.cranesflyforpeace.com/ which has a YouTube link that explains why she makes the lovely cranes. She has made almost 2000 and given them away.
Peacemakers, Inc. is a constant source of inspiration to her and she wants to be able to tell her grandchildren: "Grandma did all she could to help bring Peace to the world."
