Alice Marie Johnson, who was granted clemency by President Donald Trump, will be one of the guest speakers at the Republican National Convention.
Trump commuted Johnson's life sentence in 2018 after she served 21 years for a nonviolent drug crime.
Johnson hopes her message of redemption and freedom will resonate with the RNC audience.
"I'll be there talking about criminal justice reform, that is my main mission," Jonson tells The Daily Beast.
"I'm there because I've been affected by our criminal justice system," she added.
Trump, 74, clinched the Republican nomination for a second term on the first day of the Republican National Convention on Monday. Aug. 24.
The president spoke for nearly an hour at the Charlotte Convention Center. "This is the most important election in the history of our country," Trump told the audience. "This is the biggest."
The crowd chanted "four more years" as Trump arrived at the convention center. "If you really want to drive them crazy, say 12 more years," Trump joked.
Democrats believe Trump has no plans to leave the White House if he loses the 2020 election to Joe Biden.
Meanwhile, the 77-year-old Democratic nominee confirmed he will campaign from his basement in Delaware over the next three months.
In a rare interview with ABC's World News Tonight, Biden responded to anchor David Muir questioning whether he can win an election from his home.
"We will," Biden said. "We're gonna follow the science, what the scientists tell us. We've been able to travel to places when we've been able to do it in a way that we don't cause the congregation of large numbers of people."
Biden's campaign say he will campaign from his basement until November due to the coronavirus pandemic.
