Leonardo DiCaprio Folds His Climate Change Foundation Into New Earth Alliance

Environmentalist and Oscar-winner Leonardo DiCaprio is the narrator and co-producer of Ice on Fire, an ‘eye-opening’ look at ‘never-before-seen solutions’ to climate change.

‘Ice On Fire’ first aired on HBO June 11 and is perhaps coordinated with another major decision by DiCaprio to fold his environmental charity, The Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, into the new Earth Alliance.

As a co-founding chair, the actor will join forces with Laurene Powell Jobs and her Emerson Collective and billionaire investor Brian Sheth, who is a co-founder and president of the private equity fund Vista Equity Partners and also board chair of the Global Wildlife Conservation.

The September 2018 issue of Marie Claire US devotes its entire issue to the talents and contributions "of female authors, executives, actresses, athletes, designers (all of whom have become activists)—including Priyanka Chopra, Constance Wu, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Maria Cornejo, among other equally formidable women—with roots in foreign lands."

After a huge dose of womanly inspiration, Marie Claire gets down to business with these timely articles:

1)The Women Fixing How the US Treats Immigrants; 2)True Stories from the Border and 3) Easy Ways to Help Immigrant Kids Right Now

Flipping on Marie Claire's first story, in walks Laurene Powell Jobs and her Emerson Collective.

Known for their focus on education and publishing (They now own The Atlantic), the Emerson Collective is developing a major arm to help immigrants and asylum seekers. In the image at the top, I'm pretty sure that's JR with Jobs.

Hillary Clinton: Realist and Idealist

Speaking about Hillary Clinton to TIME 100, Laurene Jobs said:

Hillary Clinton is not familiar. She is revolutionary. Not radical, but revolutionary: The distinction is crucial. She is one of America’s greatest modern creations.

Her decades in our public life must not blind us to the fact that she represents new realities and possibilities. Indeed, those same decades have conferred upon her what newness usually lacks: judgment, and even wisdom.

Laurene for Dreamers

Through her work for College Track, Laurene Powell Jobs became deeply involved in the challenges of being undocumented in America. The result is that this powerhouse woman has become a leader in pushing the Dream Act, first introduced in 2001. In December 2012, Powell Jobs enlisted the help of the Academy Award-winning documentary filmmaker Davis Guggenheim, asking him to make a short documentary about immigration. The two met through the making of Davis’ documentary ‘Waiting for Superman’, a film that examined the crisis in America’s public schools.

Powell Jobs needed a film to influence Congress in deliberations around an immigration bill.
