Yesterday, Kim Kardashian went to the White House to discuss the pardoning of Alice Johnson, a 62-year-old woman serving a life sentence for a first-time nonviolent drug offence.
Kim has been advocating for Alice Johnson's release since last October, enlisting her own lawyer and funding the proceedings.
Speaking to Mic earlier this month, Kim explained her reasons for her advocacy:
If you think about a decision that you've made in your life, and you got a life sentence without the possibility of parole for your first-time nonviolent offence, there's just something so wrong with that. Where I am at in my life right now, spending my money buying material things just doesn't satisfy me the way it used to. To save someone's life, and do that once a year, would make my heart fuller.
