Kim Kardashian has moved on to a phase in her life where she wants to be an advocate for prison reform in a country that has one of the highest numbers prison inmates in the world. After making history by meeting with President Trump to release Alice Marie Johnson in June, she has moved on to do more for prison reform.
On July 6, Kim made her way to the California Institution for Women in Corona. She toured the prison and met with women to talk about their life after prison.
The inmates spoke about what their hopes, plans, and anxieties are concerning leaving the institution.
TMZ reports that the purpose of the trip was so she can gain insight for a program that she is working on which will help women adjust to life after being locked up.
This is just the beginning of what the reality star plans to do.
Kardashian originally made headlines when she said that she would have her lawyers look into the case of Cyntoia Brown, a young woman who is serving time for killing her rapist.
When Cyntoia’s case went viral last year, the mother of three tweeted: “The system has failed. It’s heart breaking to see a young girl sex trafficked then when she has the courage to fight back is jailed for life! We have to do better & do what’s right. I’ve called my attorneys yesterday to see what can be done to fix this. #FreeCyntoiaBrown”
Around the same time, Kim saw a documentary concerning Alice Johnson — a first-time offender who was given life in prison with no parole for a non-violent crime.
She has been working on both cases leading to the release of Alice. As far as Cyntoia, the status of Kim’s work with her case is unknown.
It’s great to see that the “KUWK” star is using her influence to bring attention to unfair rulings that are constantly overlooked.
