Mrs. West is in the building! The prison building, that is. Kim Kardashian West has been on a criminal justice reform movement lately and has been very vocal about her passion in fighting for justice. It was announced a few days ago that Mrs. West is working on a documentary about prison reform, the media mogul continued the conversation on Twitter yesterday tweeting, "Last week I was so moved by Dr. Marc Howard, a Georgetown professor who teaches a course inside of a DC prison where men & women can get Georgetown credits. I met so many amazing people that can't wait to share their stories with you."
To give you a little back story, West was at a correctional facility in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday where she began filming her documentary titled, "Kim Kardashian West: The Justice Project." In her efforts to "secure freedom for Americans" who she believes have been wronged by the justice system, West has been on the move to make the world a better place. This time, she was accompanied by Director of Prison and Justice Initiative and Georgetown University Professor, Dr. Marc M. Howard, where Dr. Howard also posted snaps of the two speaking to inmates.
Kim Kardashian has opened up about her passion around issues of prison reform dating back to the work of her late father, Robert George Kardashian. Robert Kardashian is well-known for his work during the O.J. Simpson trial, gaining national recognition as his defense attorney back in the infamous 1995 case. Kim opened up about wanting to become a lawyer in her latest season of "Keeping Up with the Kardashian's," where she is seen flying to Sacramento to take private classes to study law books for her apprenticeship. Last year, the star met with 63-year-old, Alice Marie Johnson, who was serving a life-sentence for a first-time, non-violent drug offense. West was so taken back by the issue, that she went as far as to meeting with President Donald Trump who later commuted Johnson's sentence.
The socialite, TV personality and businesswoman plans to officially add "lawyer" to her heavy resume, as West is studying criminal law and plans to take her bar exam in 2022. Kim Kardashian has reportedly helped free 17 inmates serving life sentences for low-level drug offenses in the past, and she isn't planning on pumping the brakes anytime soon. "Kim Kardashian West: The Justice Project" is slated to be a two-hour documentary, to air on Oxygen which spotlights and follows the success of another prisoner release by way of Mrs. West. The release date of the documentary has yet to be announced, but as we all know Kim Kardashian West will keep us up on its ETA and leveraging the awareness of the documentary through her socials. Stay tuned with us for more updates as it develops.
