Leighton Meester is an aspiring Singer-Songwriter, best known for her role as Blair Waldorf in the TV show Gossip Girl.  Her first acting role on a television program was on NBC’s legal drama Law  & Order in 1999. Other series in which Meester has appeared include Surface, Entourage, CSI Miami, 8 Simple Rules, 7th Heaven, and House.  Now Leighton is taking a stand against domestic violence by raising awareness of the horrible situation.

“I think it’s an issue that everyone can take part in because it applies to everyone. You can be a victim or someone you love can be a victim. The more people are aware, the more it can be prevented.” Meester said as a woman, she has a special interest in the issue. “No matter who is affected by domestic violence, I take it personally, so I think it’s partly my responsibility to talk about it.”
