Kim Kardashian West has helped free 17 federal prisoners in the last three months. Kim successfully helped release these inmates in the last three months by funding the 90 days of Freedom campaign. Which is headed by lawyers, Brittany K. Barnett and MiAngel Cody of the Decarceration Collective.
Brittany and MiAngel confirmed Kardashian’s involvement in funding the 90 Days of Freedom Campaign in response to President Trump’s signing of the First Step Act, which allows some people imprisoned on federal drug offenses to seek sentence reductions, particularly those serving life terms.
“She’s using her platform to shine a light on this issue.” Said Barnett, who is Kardashian West’s personal lawyer and one of the co-creators of the Buried Alive Project. “She really helped us with the work we’ve already been doing, and she’s helping us amplify the voices of the people who are buried alive.”
Following the 90 Days of Freedom campaign, the Buried Alive Project and the Decarceration Collective are launching the Third Strike Project to help the hundreds of people left out by the First Step Act. “Our work is not done. There are so many more we hope to save.”
Inspired by the success of her campaign to release Johnson, Kim recently revealed that she is preparing to become a lawyer. Last summer, she decided to start a four-year apprenticeship with a law firm in San Francisco. With a goal of taking the bar exam in 2022.
“I just felt like I wanted to be able to fight for people who have paid their dues to society. I just felt like the system could be so different, and I wanted to fight to fix it. And if I knew more, I could do more.”
