Kim Kardashian-West is serious about her advocacy of prison reform, and she wants everyone else to know its importance by creating a documentary about it. 


Prison reform is what drew Kim Kardashian-West into becoming a lawyer, after realizing there were many people like Alice Marie Johnson, the first person whom she helped free. 


The criminal justice reform advocate is working on a documentary about the subject entitled "Kim Kardashian West: The Justice Project," hoping to educate people about why reform needs to take place. 

An Educational Film

Kim dropped by a Washington, D.C. prison last week to film part of her new project, explaining that she met inmates who are currently taking educational courses under Georgetown professor Marc Howard. 


Kardashian-West was "so moved" by Dr. Marc Howard and his advocacy, as these inmates can get Georgetown credits from the professor. 

Kim's Advocacy

The reality TV star has been working on her advocacy since 2018, trying to change the sentences of inmates whom she believes were unfairly sentenced.

The first was Alice Marie Johnson, a first-time nonviolent drug offender who was serving a life sentence since 1996. Last year, President Trump granted her amnesty and she was freed. 


This year, Kim stepped it up a notch by presenting a new program to the White House that would aid former inmates in getting jobs after being released from prison.

She also announced that at 38 years old, she is currently studying to become a lawyer so that she can fully push for her advocacy. 

With Kim involving herself in state matters a lot more, the "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star has been asked multiple times if she planned to run for office in 2020.

According to Kim, she is not going to do anything that takes away her time from her children. She would much rather do silent work on the sidelines, hoping to give thousands of people a better shot at life.
