GitHub Actions Across Repositories

I have one repository that is public and one repository that is private. The private repository needs to perform an action when a release happens in the public repository. Is there anyway with GitHub Actions to start an action based on an event that happens in another repository?

You can send dispatch event from public repo workflow to private repo, see https://github.community/t5/GitHub-Actions/Triggering-by-other-repository/m-p/30688/highlight/true#M512 and release event docs.
