Willimantic, Conn. - Eastern Connecticut State University's Intercultural Center will be hosting "Born This Way," an anti-bullying initiative, from 1-4 p.m. on Oct. 23 in the Betty R. Tipton Room located in the Student Center.
Inspired by a national outcry against bullying, students will be asked to write their biggest insecurity on a white t-shirt for the day. The event gives students the opportunity to embrace their differences and express their individuality.
Led by Lady Gaga and her mother, Cynthia Germanotta, the Born This Way Foundation was founded in 2011 to foster a more accepting society, where people of all ages, gender and ethnicities are able to express themselves. The foundation is dedicated to creating a safe community that helps connect young people with the skills and opportunities they need to build a kinder, braver world.
