Meek and Rubin were ready to take action with the plan. “So we’re taking on the whole criminal justice system now, and we’re gonna be announcing a major foundation soon,” he explained. “I’m going to be highly involved with it, Meek’s going to be highly involved with it, and some other big people who you know and follow and care about will also be very involved with it. We think we can launch what will be the most impactful foundation within criminal justice reform and create a movement.”
