Mitzi Perdue holds a BA with honors from Harvard University and an MPA from the George Washington University.
She is a past president of the 35,000-member American Agri-Women, a former syndicated columnist for Scripps Howard and her column, The Environment and You, in the 1990s.
Her television series, Country Magazine, was syndicated to 76 stations. She’s the founder of CERES Farms, the second-generation family-owned vineyards that sell wine grapes to wineries such as Mondavi, Kendall-Jackson, Bogle, Folie a Deux, and Toasted Head. 
Mitzi combines the experiences of three long-time family businesses.  Her father Ernest Henderson co-founded the Sheraton Hotel Chain and her late husband Frank Perdue was the second generation in the poultry company that today operates in more than 50 countries. She herself founded CERES Farms in 1974.
She became part of anti-human trafficking efforts after hearing a talk on how we can rescue and rehabilitate victims of trafficking. “What charity could I cut back on?” But then she had an idea. She could raise money by auctioning something she owned, a17th Century De Medici desk, and she could donate the proceeds to anti-trafficking efforts. 
That was the beginning of Win This Fight.  Today many dozens of others who care about human trafficking will be converting high-value tangible assets into cash through an anti-trafficking auction at Sotheby’s in January of 2021.  They get to determine which anti-trafficking benefits from their donation.
