Meek Mill is a man of his word.
Last year when the Philly rapper was released from jail, he vowed to be dedicated to prison reform.
Reported on TMZ, Meek will be joined by 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin, CNN’s Van Jones (the CEO of REFORM Alliance), and a few politicians. Together, they will “propose a new legislation to reform the state probation and parole system.”
The article also says, “the proposed bill aims to prevent the courts from sentencing a person to consecutive probation sentences, prevent the court from extending a person’s time on probation or parole due to nonpayment of fines and fees, plus establish a system of incentives that reward good behavior.”
The “What’s Free” rapper Meek calls this proposal “the first step to changing the system in his home state.” The article says he also said, “I’ve lost too much time away from my son, my family, my friends and fans in Philly because of outdated probation laws, so I want to make sure people don’t have go through what I did.”
