Kim Kardashian West has taken full advantage of the Trump White House. She has done this for the benefit of four women who undoubtedly are extremely grateful. In 2018 Alice Marie Johnson was one of the first to be granted clemency by President Trump via the work and influence of Kardashian West. The 65 year-old Johnson was serving a life sentence for a nonviolent drug conviction. Kardashian West learned about the case through a viral video. She visited the White House and with the help of Jared Kushner lobbied on behalf of Johnson and helped her gain her freedom after being locked up since 1996.
Brittany K. Barnett, Kardashian West’s personal lawyer pointed to her dedication to this cause in an interview with BuzzFeedNews “This wasn’t just a one-off thing,” Barnett said of Kardashian West. “This is a real passion for her.”
Brittany K. Barnett and MiAngel Cody are the architects of #90DaysOfFreedom Campaign. In three months they worked to free 17 federal prisoners who were unfairly convicted and were given life sentences for drug crimes. Kardashian-West has attached her celebrity to this movement and continues this work with fervor.
Kardashian-West visited the White House on 3-4-2020 with four women who have been granted clemency to continue this discussion on criminal justice reform.
In an interview with Vogue in 2019 Kardashian revealed that she would be going back to school to become a lawyer. “I just felt like I wanted to be able to fight for people who have paid their dues to society,” Kardashian West tells Vogue. “I just felt like the system could be so different, and I wanted to fight to fix it, and if I knew more, I could do more.”
She is clearly on her way.
