Kim Kardashian Takes On The White House
Kim Kardashian is bringing attention to three women whose sentences were commuted by U.S. President Donald Trump.
Crystal Munoz, Judith Negron, and Tynice Hall got to spend the day with the reality star, saying that they were "three really deserving women".
Kardashian added that she and the women “will be at the White House bringing light to these women and discuss more change that our justice system desperately needs!”
Munoz “was sentenced to 20 years in prison for conspiracy to possess and distribute marijuana. She left behind a 5-month-old and was pregnant.”
Negron “was sentenced to 35 years in prison for conspiracy to commit health care fraud… She left behind two young sons.”
Hall “was sentenced to 35 years in prison for a first-time non-violent drug conspiracy… She was only 22 years old when she went to prison and left behind a 3-year-old son."
The mother of four played a significant role in persuading Trump to support the First Step Act, which enacted major prison reform in the U.S. prison system.
She has previously spoken about social justice, and has a much anticipated Netflix documentary coming out, called Kim Kardashian West: The Justice Project.
"I’m raising four black kids in this society and our system is so discriminatory against black and brown people. I want to do as much as I can to make their lives easier…I never knew much about the system until I started to dig in, and once I learned and saw how many things were wrong, I really couldn’t stop.”
