Lady Gaga continues to use her powerful voice, and Twitter following, to bring awareness to the issue of cyberbullying, by meeting with President Obama on Sunday.

"I am meeting with our President," she tweeted Wednesday. "I will not stop fighting. This must end. Our generation has the power to end it. Trend it #MakeALawForJamey."

She's referring to Jamey Rodemeyer, the 14-year-old from Buffalo, NY, who took his life earlier this month, a victim of relentless online teasing.

Gaga joined President Obama on Sunday at a political fundraiser at the home of Facebook's COO, near San Francisco, CA. The dinner, which cost just under $20,000 a ticket to attend, also featured a Q&A session in which Gaga payed tribute to Rodemeyer, read a letter concerning bullying from one of her fans, and commended the President for his advances to stop bullying. She also urged everyone in attendance to do more to help. President Obama reportedly thanked her for her remarks and said that anti-bullying efforts remain an important part of his administration and current campaign.
