Former US Vice President, Joe Biden has revealed his new collaboration with Lady Gaga to provide support victims of sexual assault while speaking at Glamour‘s Women of the Year Summit on Monday, November 13 in New York.
Biden and Gaga who previously teamed up for the It’s On Us campaign back in October, are now looking to open trauma centers for long-term relief.
“Women who are abused end up having long-term physical and physiological problems. I’m working with Lady Gaga now we want to set up trauma centers where women can go to get the long-term help they need to deal with these crises. We finally are recognizing the long-term impacts on the health of women and men who’ve been abused. It’s the next great frontier I want to be part of” Biden explained.
Lady Gaga’s working relationship with Biden stems directly from her participation in speaking out in support of sexual assault survivors. In February 2016, Biden welcomed Gaga to the stage at the Academy Awards for her moving performance of “Til It Happens To You,” the award-winning song she penned alongside Diane Warren for The Hunting Ground.
