Lady Gaga will launch a new charity in 2012 to empower youth and lead them to a braver new society “where each individual is accepted and loved as the person they were born to be.”

The Born This Way Foundation will be directed by Gaga and her mother, Cynthia Germanotta, and will partner with the The John D. & Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation and The California Endowment, which are both ranked among the top foundations in the country and focus on unique aspects of youth empowerment. The foundation will also partner with the The Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University, one of the most cutting edge institutions in the country focusing on the power of the internet as a means to promote change. An advisory board will also be appointed and announced soon.

“My mother and I have initiated a passion project,” said Lady Gaga in a statement. “We call it the Born This Way Foundation. 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.”
