Lady Gaga responds to Dayton, El Paso, and Gilroy shootings with philanthropy Like everyone else who’s not a monster, Lady Gaga is deeply distraught following the recent spate of mass shootings. On Friday, she pledged to do something about it. In a Facebook post, Gaga announced her intent to ”fully fund the classroom project needs” in Dayton, Ohio; El Paso, Texas; and Gilroy, Calif. Those three communities have all suffered in recent weeks in the wake of mass shootings that left, in total, close to 100 people dead or injured. ”My heart goes out to those who were taken from us too soon and to their families, loved ones, and communities who are left to grieve,” Gaga’s note begins. ”Everyone has the right to laws that make them feel safe in their communities. In this moment, I want to channel my confusion, frustration, and fury into hope. Hope that we are there for each other and for ourselves.” Read more...More about Lady Gaga, Born This Way Foundation, Donorschoose, Social Good, and Activism
