This Is How Reality Star, Kim Kardashian Is Helping Ex-Convicts Get Back Their Lives

Reality star, Kim Kardashian was at the White House on Thursday to speak on criminal justice.

This is coming on the heels of her recent campaigns for criminal justice reform issues.

Kim was at the forefront championing for the pardon of convicted drug trafficker, Alice Johnson.

In June 2018, after serving 21 years in prison, Johnson was released from the Federal Correctional Institution, Aliceville, after President Donald Trump commuted her sentence.

“It’s really is such an honor to be here,” she said, describing how she had gotten involved advocating for former inmates after making numerous visits to prisons.

“I’d gotten to the place in my life where I wanted to make a difference. I wanted to do the right thing,” she said. After visiting prisoners, she said, “My heart just completely opened up and I wanted to do more. So, I started studying law.”

“I just wanted to thank the president for standing behind this issue,” she said, turning toward Trump who was looking on beside her.
