LEONARDO DICAPRIO URGES 35 MILLION TO JOIN THE CLIMATE STRIKE 09/20/2019

The Academy Award-winning actor and environmentalist Leonardo DiCXaprio shared an Instagram post yesterday from the Natural Resource Defence Council (NRDC), a New York City-based environmental advocacy group. "On Friday, September 20, NRDC is following the lead of young climate leaders like @GretaThunberg and others, and striking for #climateaction," the post reads. "Around the world, climate activists will be taking to the streets, calling on governments to tackle the crisis with the urgency it deserves—because future generations depend on it," the post continues. Turnout for the New York City strike may reach a record high. The city announced that its 1.1 million public school students will be allowed to skip school to attend the protest without penalization. "Just days before the U.N. Climate Summit in New York, the strike will kick off a week of action and send a clear message to decision-makers that there is no more time to deliberate," the post states. DiCaprio is a longtime environmental advocate. He launched the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation in 1998 shortly after starring in James Cameron's historical fiction epic, "Titanic." The organization is centered around climate change, wildlife conservation, and Indigenous peoples' rights. Climate strikes will take place in 150 countries. (livekindly.com)
