This may be Kim Kardashian’s calling. The beauty mogul has been quietly helping to free inmates who were sentenced for low-level drug offenses. Kim K’s lawyer, Brittany K. Barnett, launched a campaigned called 90 Days of Freedom. The campaign uses the First Step Act to work for prisoners serving “harsh” crimes. Kim K. has been footing the bill.
Through the campaign, Kim and the legal team have successfully been able to help free 17 “or so” prisoners in just 90 days, according to reports. This news comes after Kim let fans know that she is studying to become a lawyer. We know Kim has been working with prison reform, but she can now add to her resume.

For the last year, I have immersed myself in learning about the criminal justice system. I visited prisons, met with formerly incarcerated people, and helped with cases of individual injustice – including two death penalty cases. I have met with and am very supportive of Governor Newsom and his decision to help bring an end to the California Death Penalty. Racial bias and unfairness run deep throughout the justice system but especially when it comes to the death penalty. And we should not be okay with the risk that an innocent person could be executed. I hope we can turn toward better solutions that focus more on healing victims of trauma and prioritizing fairness and justice.
This is a great look for the mogul! Speaking of looks- did you see her last night (May 6th) at the Met Gala? Check out drip below.
