Kim Kardashian is making good on her promise to continue advocating for the effective rehabilitation of prisoners after successfully campaigning to free Alice Johnson.
Kardashian met with a group of 15 inmates at a women’s prison in California on Friday, touring the facility before sitting down face-to-face with the women, TMZ reports.
According to TMZ, Kim talked to the prisoners” to get a picture of what their day-to-day lives are like behind bars, how they feel about it … and what their hopes, plans and anxieties are once they are released.”
It appears the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star is working on a program that would support women once they’ve left jail and are re-adjusting to normal life.
Ex-cons can often struggle to find employment, a place to live, and to stay away from problems that resulted in them being incarcerated in the first place, such as gang violence or drug addiction.
She was at the California Institution for Women in Corona for several hours.
Following the announcement Alice Johnson had been granted clemency by US President Donald Trump after Kim met with him at the White House, Kardashian said it was only the start of her work in this area.
“[I want to] continue this important work by working together with organisations who have been fighting this fight for much longer than I have and deserve the recognition,” she tweeted.
