The most famous member of the Kardashian clan, Kim, took some time off her busy schedule to visit a women's prison in California to talk to some of the inmates.

Last Friday, July 6, 2018, the socialite took a trip to the California Institution for Women in Corona with the intention of gathering information about what it feels like to live behind bars.

According to TMZ, the 37-year-old's purpose is to create and develop a program that will allow women to adjust to society again after being released from prison.

Kim arrived at the correctional facility with a few bodyguards and started her visit by touring the grounds and living quarters. She later had the chance to meet some of the inmates and talked with them for several hours.

The mother-of-three willingly sat with several women locked up in the institution in order to learn their hopes, dreams and plans after their release.

Not only that, Kim also wanted to know the origins of their anxiety inside the prison walls, such as loneliness, missing their friends and families, lack of freedom or trouble with authority.

All those factors are important for Kim, who wishes to learn anything that will allow her to have a positive contribution and impact in the lives of those who are granted a second chance.

This isn't the first time that the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has taken a special interest in prison life. Back in May, Kim visited President Donald Trump at the White House to advocate for Alice Marie Johnson.

Johnson, a great-grandmother, had been sentenced to life in jail with no chance of parole in 1997 on drug trafficking offenses, which seemed unfair to Kim.

After the meeting, during which Kim pleaded with President Trump, the U.S. leader agreed to free Johnson on June 6, 21 years after being incarcerated, and Kim celebrated the moment by sharing the wonderful news on Twitter.
