Lady Gaga Born This Way Foundation
February 16, 2012 by staff
Lady Gaga Born This Way Foundation, Lady Gaga is taking the next step in her ongoing efforts to put an end to youth bullying: On Feb. 29, the chart-topping singer, alongside her mother Cynthia Germanotta, is launching the Born This Way Foundation at The Berkman Center at Harvard.
Through education, research, and advocacy efforts, the nonprofit foundation — which is in partnership with the John D. & Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, The California Endowment, and The Berkman Center — is aimed at teaching anti-bullying and mentoring youths in building self-confidence. (The mission statement on the foundation’s website reads, “This way, towards bravery, where youth are empowered. This way, towards a acceptance where humanity is embraced. This way, towards love where individuality is encouraged.”)
The opening of the foundation, which kicks off a campaign “to create a kinder and braver world,” has already garnered the attention of some rather influential people. According to the Associated Press, Oprah Winfrey, Deepak Chopra, U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, and Harvard Law professor Charles Ogletree are just some of the names scheduled to attend. (Columnist Dan Savage’s similarly-themed “It Gets Better” project, which was started in response to the tragic onslaught of bullying-related gay teen suicides, drew support and action from the likes of Ellen DeGeneres, Neil Patrick Harris, Anne Hathaway, Tim Gunn, Ke$ha, Perez Hilton, Sarah Silverman.)
