Valerie Jarrett, senior adviser to President Obama, says 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."

Although the president was out of town, Gaga visited the White House Tuesday to discuss the Obama administration's antibullying campaign with staffers. In a blog post on the White House website, Jarrett writes, "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."

Jarrett notes that the entertainer created her Born This Way Foundation to raise awareness for a cause that is very personal to her. "I am deeply moved by the way she has used her story, and her success, to inspire young people, and shine the spotlight on important issues," Jarrett writes.

Jarrett says she is "proud to be part of an Administration that has taken steps to address bullying" and "as we continue protecting our children, we look forward to working with Lady Gaga, the Born This Way Foundation, and with every American who is willing to help make our society more kind, inclusive, and equal."
