Instagram

Leonardo DiCaprio makes a statement in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Thursday on Instagram, the “Titanic” actor shared an image that read, “I commit to listen, learn and take action” in response to the recent protests against racial injustice and police brutality.

“I am dedicated to end the disenfranchisement of Black America, that has been present for too long,” the Oscar winner wrote. “I will support those individuals, organizations, and coalitions that are committed to bring about long-term change.”

To prove his commitment, the 45-year-old has dedicated donations to four nonprofit organizations: Color of Change, Fair Fight Action, the NAACP, and the Equal Justice Initiative.

“I will be donating personally to each of the following organizations,” DiCaprio wrote.

Last month, DiCaprio and his “Killers of the Flower Moon” co-star Robert De Niro teamed up for the All In Challenge, a digital fundraiser that offers items or experiences through auctions and sweepstakes to support hunger relief organizations Feeding America, Meals on Wheels, World Central Kitchen, and No Kid Hungry.

“These organizations are on the front lines helping those most impacted by this crisis,” DiCaprio wrote on his IG, referencing the coronavirus pandemic.

The lucky winner will win a walk-on role, lunch with DiCaprio, De Niro, and the film’s director Martin Scorsese, and acting tips from Scorsese himself.
