Lady Gaga accepts ADL award on behalf of her Born This Way Foundation


Lady Gaga from her award acceptance video Lady Gaga from her award acceptance video (JTA) — Pop star Lady Gaga has accepted the Anti- Defamation League’s Making a Difference award for “work championing positive social change” on behalf of her Born This Way Foundation. “The Foundation shares ADL’s mission of combating bullying among young people,” an ADL press release said.

“This is such an incredible honor,” Gaga said in a videotaped acceptance speech. “The No Place For Hate Making A Difference Award is a huge deal for both of us, especially because of all of the hard work ADL has been doing to fight anti-Semitism, homophobia, bigotry and intolerance for the past 100 years.”

The award was presented at a ceremony in New York City attended by children from 85 different New York and New Jersey schools.

The Born This Way Foundation, founded by Gaga and her mother Cynthia Germanotta in 2011, works to combat bullying and empower youth, according to its website.

“Lady Gaga is so much more than a pop artist, so much more than an incredible entertainer. She is a oneof a-kind inspirational champion for social change and a positive role model for young people,” said Abraham H. Foxman, ADL’s national director.
