According to a press release, the show will focus on KKW’s “efforts to secure freedom for Americans who she believes have been wronged by the justice system.” She has promised an “exclusive, never-before-seen look inside her mission to tackle one of America’s most controversial subjects.”
Kim Kardashian West is set to continue her impressive crusade against injustice in the United States. She’s just announced that she’ll be releasing a two-hour documentary on prison reform aptly called Kim Kardashian: The Justice Project.
And it’s quite a mission. Kim recently told her 137 million Instagram followers that she’s registered with the Californian State Bar to study law over the next four years.
“I’ve seen some comments from people who are saying it’s my privilege or my money that got me here, but that’s not the case,” she wrote in a caption. “One person actually said I should “stay in my lane.” I want people to understand that there is nothing that should limit your pursuit of your dreams, and the accomplishment of new goals. You can create your own lanes, just as I am.”
She explained that she didn’t finish college but she has enough credits to qualify for this particular program. She studies at night, when she’s put the kids to bed. “This week I have a big torts essay due on negligence. Wish me luck,” she concluded.
That torts essay is not the only work Kim’s been doing towards becoming a champion for the wrongfully imprisoned. Last year, she personally lobbied President Donald Trump to grant clemency to 63-year-old Alice Marie Johnson, who was serving a life sentence for a first-time, non-violent drug offence. In June, President Trump commuted the sentence, which was a huge victory.
Just last week, Kim tweeted that she’s had another significant legal triumph. She and her attorney secured the release of a man called Jeffrey, who has served 22 years of a life sentence for a low level drug charge. “He served too much time but it gives me so much joy to fund this life saving work,” she wrote.
Kim has helped 17 prisoners in the past three months, according to a report by TMZ. She’s apparently involved in a campaign called 90 Days of Freedom, which was started by Kim’s attorney, Brittany K. Barnet, and a lawyer called MiAngel Cody.
Presumably we’ll be hearing all about Kim’s legal work in her upcoming documentary. Sounds like Keeping Up With The Kardashians will now require viewers to think about the failings of the American justice system, which can only be a good thing.
We’re seriously impressed. As Kim said on Instagram, it’s never too late to follow your dreams – and all the better if they help people who’ve been wronged or forgotten by the law.
