Former Vice President Joe Biden announced Monday he is planning to open help centers for sexual assault survivors with pop star Lady Gaga.
“Women who are abused end up having long-term physical and physiological problems,” Biden said during an appearance at Glamour's Women of the Year Summit in New York City, according to Entertainment Weekly. “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."
Biden said initiatives that provided long-term assistance to male and female abuse survivors were "the next great frontier."
Biden previously partnered with Lady Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, on their "It's On Us" campaign.
That Obama administration program eventually morphed into a nonprofit organization that works to educate young people about sexual assault on college campuses, while also teaching them how to intervene and prevent an incident from happening.
