Kim Kardashian West thanks Ivanka Trump for support on criminal justice reform

Kim Kardashian West who is among the celebrities who have advocated for criminal justice reform speaks during an event on second chance hiring with President Donald Trump in the East Room of the White House Thursday

Reality star and activist Kim Kardashian West took a star turn at the White House this morning to promote efforts to help those leaving prison get jobs and stay on track.

Speaking at the event on Thursday, she announced a new ride share partnership with Lyft, which will give them gift cards to allow them to get rides to and from interviews. "And I believe they have been pushed a bit by Kim Kardashian", President Trump said.

"My heart just completely opened up and I wanted to do more, which is law school in California", she added, later discussing the First Step Act.

"My whole journey with this started a year ago when I visited the White House", she explained.

Kim Kardashian joined President Trump in announcing a proposal to help former inmates get jobs out of prison.

It all happened as the reality TV star met with the US President at the White House. The program is "so important" and "so needed", she said.

"I am heading to the White House to speak at the Second Chance Hiring and Re-entry Event". Speaking briefly and holding back tears, Sanders said that she would continue to be an "outspoken" and loyal supporter of the president.

Kardashian previously plead for Alice Johnson to receive clemency, which President Trump granted.

In May of previous year, Kardashian West met with President Trump in the Oval Office to talk about prison reform and clemency for Alice Marie Johnson.

Since President Trump signed the First Step Act in December 2018, his administration has been working to make sure the inmates released early have the tools and jobs they need to adjust to life outside prison. "Seeing the passion he has for criminal justice has been really remarkable".

Young is serving a life sentence on nonviolent drug charges, but recently, the judge in his case, Kevin Sharp, wrote a letter to Trump arguing that Young only played a minor role in the drug conspiracy and that the mandatory sentencing laws that determined his sentence was out of proportion with the crime.

"Proud to partner on this initiative with @Lyft, a company with a history of taking bold action to do what's right for our community", she tweeted.

"I just felt like I wanted to be able to fight for people who have paid their dues to society". She's also one of the most successful people in the entertainment business.
