In June 2018, Kim Kardashian West used her global fame to publicly campaign for criminal justice reform by convincing the White House to grant Alice Marie Johnson clemency. Inspired by her work with Johnson, Kardashian has made it her personal mission to lobby for systematic change and advocate for the men and women who she and her legal experts believe have been unfairly sentenced. Now, as she pursues her own career in law, Kardashian is dedicating both personal resources and her public platform to the cause. Her upcoming documentary for Oxygen, Kim Kardashian West: The Justice Project captures Kim as she lends a hand to right injustices and advocate for change. Ahead of the documentary’s debut in April, NBC News’ Craig Melvin will sit down with Kim Kardashian West for a discussion on criminal justice reform along with #cut50 co-founder & senior counsel Jessica Jackson and Momolu Stewart, who is featured in the documentary, and was recently released after serving 22 years in prison.
