Reality TV star Kim Kardashian is doing way bigger things than just slaying at the Met Gala or keeping up with her family Sunday nights. New reports claim Kanye West‘s wife has continued her pursuit to have incarcerated people released.
According to reports, Kim’s focus has centered on freeing individuals locked up on life sentences for petty drug-related crimes.
We’ve learned Kim and her legal team helped 17 prisoners gain freedom over the last 3 months or so — each of them having served years of life sentences without parole … for low-level drug offenses. It’s all part of the 90 Days of Freedom campaign launched by Kim’s lawyer, Brittany K. Barnett, in partnership with lawyer MiAngel Cody of The Decarceration Collective. The campaign puts the First Step Act — signed by President Trump last year — to work for prisoners who received Draconian sentences. (TMZ)
Kim has made sure to keep fans updated on her life-changing mission.
In 2018, KK made headlines after meeting with President Donald Trump and pushing to free low-level drug offenders.
Kardashian West, who is currently studying to be a lawyer, has spent the last year helping inmates who were given too harsh a prison sentence seek clemency. Last year, the reality star successfully petitioned President Donald Trump to commute the life sentence of Alice Marie Johnson, a nonviolent drug offender. After Johnson was released, a major bipartisan piece of criminal justice–reform legislation, the FIRST STEP Act, was passed by Congress and signed into law by Trump in December. (People)
