Senior Adviser Of Obama Deeply Moved By Lady Gaga

Written by 

Valerie Jarrett

Last week, Lady Gaga met White House's officials. Valerie Jarrett, senior adviser to President Obama, said that she was "deeply moved" by her meeting with Lady Gaga and looks forward to working with her "to help make our society more kind, inclusive and equal."

Lady Gaga went to the White House to talk about bullying in school. In a blog on the White House website, Jarrett wrote "Lady Gaga is a source of strength for many young people who feel isolated and scared at their schools. Today, I had the opportunity to welcome her to the White House, where we discussed ways we could work together to make sure that no child comes under attack, regardless of his or her race, sexual orientation, gender identity, or any other factor."

She added to be "proud to be part of an Administration that has taken steps to address bullying. 

"In 2010, the Department of Education made it clear to schools that allowing bullying against LGBT students can violate anti-discrimination statutes. 

"In 2011, the Department reaffirmed students’ rights to form gay-straight alliances and other similar groups. 

"Earlier this year, President Obama and the First Lady held a White House Conference on Bullying Prevention.

"And today the Administration released a new analysis of state bullying laws and policies, summarizing the efforts currently in place to prevent bullying in and out of schools.  The report shows that while states have made recent progress in enacting policies and legislation to address bullying, more must be done."
