“Born This Way” fights against bullying.
Abraham H. Foxman, ADL’s national director, said, “Lady Gaga is so much more than a pop artist, so much more than an incredible entertainer. She is a one-of-a-kind inspirational champion for social change and a positive role model for young people.”
“The Foundation shares ADL’s mission of combating bullying among young people, ” an ADL press release said.
Gaga posted a video on Youtube thanking the ADL for the award saying, “This is such an incredible honor. The No Place for Hate Making a Difference award is a huge deal for me especially because of all the hard work the ADL has been doing to fight anti-Semitism, homophobia, bigotry and intolerance for the last 100 years.”
