Kim Kardashian To Produce Documentary On Criminal Justice Reform
The documentary is tentatively titled Kim Kardashian: The Justice Project.
Kim Kardashian is executive producing a documentary on criminal justice reform.
Titled Kim Kardashian: The Justice Project, the two-hour documentary “will capture Kardashian’s efforts to secure freedom for Americans who she believes have been wronged by the justice system,” and will offer an “exclusive, never before seen look inside her mission to tackle one of America’s most controversial subjects,” according to a press release via Variety.
The documentary will be airing on Oxygen. A date has yet to be confirmed.
In June 2018, Kardashian publicly campaigned for clemency for Alice Marie Johnson, a 63-year-old Alabama woman who had been in jail on a nonviolent drug charge since 1996. She was convicted for facilitating communications in a cocaine trafficking operation in Memphis, Tennessee and was given a life sentence without the possibility of parole.
The celebrity, who is studying to become a lawyer, even met with Donald Trump in hopes of getting him to grant clemency to Johnson, which he did.
Speaking with Mic following her meeting with Trump, Kardashian said that he “really spent the time to listen to our case that we were making for Alice” and “really understood, and I am very hopeful that this will turn out really positively.”
Kardashian has reportedly helped free 17 first-time nonviolent drug offenders over the past three months as a part of a campaign called 90 Days of Freedom.
“Kim has been funding this project and (has been) a very important supporter of our 90 Days of Freedom campaign as part of the First Step Act, which President Trump signed into law last year,” MiAngel Cody, lead counsel of the The Decarceration Collective, told CNN. “We’ve been going around the country in courtrooms and asking judges to release these inmates.”
