Whoever thought the efforts of Kim Kardashian West in assisting with the release of Alice Marie Johnson last month was a one-off occurrence, think again. This past Friday Kim visited several prisoners to receive an understanding of their experiences, as well as attempting to find out any hurdles that they have about returning to society.
TMZ reports Kim visited the California Institution for Women in Corona with a few members of a security detail and toured the area and living quarters. After the tour, she met with 15 women to understand their day-to-day interactions. The trip lasted several hours for Kim K and is apart of her planning to develop a program for women who will be leaving incarceration and adapting back to a life beyond bars.
In the case for the aforementioned Alice Marie Johnson, KKW worked with President Trump, Jared Kushner and more to help in the release. Kim delivered the news to Johnson via phone, in which they both shed tears. “I hope to continue this important work by working together with organizations who have been fighting this fight for much longer than I have and deserve the recognition,” Kim shared in a statement after the release.
Just last month, Kim Kardashian West appeared to have another case insight as she tweeted a New York Times link requesting to test the DNA of Kevin Cooper, who is currently serving time for a 1983 manslaughter that he claims to be innocent.
