A party will be held at Sanders Theatre on February 29 to celebrate the kick-off of the organization, which was "created to promote youth empowerment and equality by encouraging self-confidence and well-being and bringing bullying to an end," MTV reports.
"My daughter's foundation was born out of her passion to create a better world where people are kinder and nicer to one another and are accepted for who they are, regardless of how different they may be," Gaga's mom said.
She continued, "She has experienced many of the struggles that our youth encounter today, and identifies with the lasting effects they can have without proper support. Together, we look forward to creating a new movement that will engage and empower youth and accept them as valuable members of our society."
The pop star has been a major supporter of anti-bullying legislation, and has been recognized by DoSomething.org, the GLAAD Media Awards, the Trevor Project and more for her work on behalf of gay rights causes. You go, Gaga!
