Kim Kardashian reportedly helped negotiate the release of 17 prisoners over the last 90 days. Kardashian helped the prisoners gain their freedom under the First Step Act which was signed into law by President Donald Trump on December 21, 2018.
Kardashian, 38, is starring in a new documentary in which she explains her personal crusade against mass incarceration of low level drug users and traffickers.
Kardashian's crusade, called 90 Days of Freedom, was launched by her lawyer Brittany K. Barnett and MiAngel Cody of the Decarceration Collective.
She most recently helped to gain the release of a Miami man who spent over 22 years behind bars.
"We did it again! Had the best call w/this lovely family & my attorney @msbkb who just won release for their loved one Jeffrey in Miami," she tweeted. "He served 22 years of life sentence for low level drug case. He served too much time but it gives me so much joy to fund this life saving work."
Each of the 17 inmates was serving life terms for non-violent drug offenses. Kardashian, Barnett, and Cody say this is only the beginning of their crusade to free drug offenders who were sentenced under California's restrictive three strikes law.
Last year, Kardashian successfully petitioned President Trump to pardon Alice Marie Johnson, a non-violent drug offender who was serving life in prison.
On a recent episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, the former adult film star who is now studying law said she wanted to focus all of her efforts on prison reform.
"It's kind of crazy because I'm learning it all as I go," said the mother-of-three. "I spend more time on this than I do anything else. It's insane but it's so fun to be around people that are super smart and get it and want the same thing."
Kardashian and her husband, musician Kanye West, are expecting their fourth child - a boy - who is due to be delivered by a surrogate. They are already parents to North West, Saint West and Chicago West.
