Kim Kardashian West is doing everything she can to affect change in America’s justice system.
The 39-year-old reality star has teamed up with Oxygen to executive produce a documentary about the United States’ criminal reform system, shedding light on those who she believes have been wrongfully incarcerated through harsh prison sentences.
According to People, the two-hour documentary, entitled “Kim Kardashian West: The Justice Project,” will focus on her advocacy efforts as she visits prisons, lobbies public officials and consults with lawyers to develop strategies to free Dawn Jackson, Alexis Martin, Momolu Stewart and David Sheppard — all of whom she and legal experts believe have been unfairly sentenced.
The documentary will also follow Kardashian West as she learns a deeper understanding of mandatory sentencing, the damaging problems of mass incarceration, and the importance of offering educational programs and rehabilitation efforts for an inmate’s successful re-entry into society.
“There are a lot of people who deserve a second chance, but many do not have the resources to make it happen. I want to help elevate these cases to a national level to effect change, and this documentary is an honest depiction of me learning about the system and helping bring tangible results to justice reform,” Kardashian West said in a statement.
“Kim Kardashian West: The Justice Project” will premiere Apr. 5 on Oxygen.
