Kim Kardashian returns to the White House to discuss criminal justice

The reality star is making a difference


Kim Kardashian has returned to the White House to discuss criminal justice.

The reality star, who is studying to become a lawyer, visited Washington D.C. once again to meet with President Trump and Cut50 advocates to discuss the First Step Act, a new bill that gives nonviolent offenders the chance to re-enter society without judgement.

During her visit, the mother-of-four gave an inspiring speech about prison reform, and explained why she wanted to take action and make a difference.

She said: “My whole journey with criminal justice reform started about a year ago when I came to see the President after speaking to Ivanka and Jared who really fought for me to get here, and I pled the case of Alice Johnson who the President granted clemency to.”

“And after that I really spent so much time going to different prisons because I really had no connection to anybody on the inside and really just felt like for me, I’m at the place in my life that I wanted to make a difference and just wanted to do the right thing, but I didn’t know how or what to do or even really what was going on.”

“After going to visit so many different prisons and really sitting down with lifers with every situation you can possibly imagine, my heart just completely opened up, and I wanted to do more,” Kim explained.

The KUWTK star also announced a brand new ride share partnership with Lyft.

She said: “I’m so happy to announce today that we have a ride share partnership, where formally incarcerated people will be gifted gift cards so they can get rides to and from job interviews, jobs, family members. That is so important, so needed.”
