Leonardo DiCaprio shares an update on how his foundation grantee Empowered by Light, which teams up with GivePower and Sunrun, deploys solar and water systems in partnership with fire fighters and first responders to power the island.
The “Titanic” star reveals that Puerto Rico has 3 million people without power and 40% without water. The report suggests that the groups organize the deployment in response to news reports indicating that most of the country is still without power, and more than 50 percent do not have clean water. It was also coordinated with San Juan fire chief Alberto Cruz and Las Vegas fire captain Richard Birt. Meanwhile, Leonardo expressed his thoughts on Harvey Weinstein’s issue when he said that there is no excuse for sexual harassment or sexual assault regardless of who you are and no matter what profession. He also applauded the strength and courage of the women who came forward and made their voices heard.
