The last two years has seen Pop ambassador Lady GaGa lend her voice to the fight against bullying and inequality, inadvertently becoming a focal point for many contemporary civil rights issues, including marriage equality and Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.
Now, she has gone one step further in her bid to make the world a better place, with the conception of the ‘Born This Way’ foundation.
Details on the project below…
To be headed by she and her mother Cynthia Germanotta, the non profit organization will focus on the empowerment, career development and self confidence of the youth it hopes to help.
Together we hope to establish a standard of Bravery and Kindness, as well as a community worldwide that protects and nurtures others in the face of bullying and abandonment.
In partnership with the Germanotta’s are The California Endowment and the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University, which stated:
This brand of leadership is sorely needed in today’s world.
Lady Gaga will help empower and give voice to young people who find themselves overwhelmed, undersupported, disconnected, isolated, bullied, or struggling.
Kudos to GaGa for doing her part to provide help to those who need it. For while many may choose to cite her support of the disenfranchised as a marketing ploy to boost sales, it is impossible to economize the positive effect this will have on all those involved.
