And The Winner Is…

Friday, March 12th, 2010

The Diller – von Furstenberg Family Foundation is proud to announce the winner of the first DVF Awards “People’s Voice” vote.  Katherine Chon, the President and Co-founder of the Washington, D.C.-based Polaris Project, inspired thousands of voters through her work in the organization, which provides emergency shelter and comprehensive case management to victims of human trafficking.

Chon will be honored at the inaugural DVF Awards ceremony on March 13th alongside three international winners—Sadiqa Basiri Saleem of Afghanistan, Danielle Saint-Lot of Haiti, and Ingrid Betancourt of Columbia.  Each woman’s organization will receive $50,000 from The Diller – von Furstenberg Family Foundation to encourage their work.
