The reality TV star returned to the White House to speak at an event promoting the hiring of prisoners released early under the First Step Act.  President Trump signed the criminal justice reform law into law in December.

Her proposal stated, “I’m so happy to announce today that we have a ride-share partnership. The formerly incarcerated people will be gifted gift cards so that they can get rides to and from job interview, to and from jobs, family members.” She also thanked Mr. Trump for his “compassion” in his dedication to reforming criminal justice.

Kardashian West added: “It really does mean a lot to so many people that I’ve had the pleasure to speak to. I think the ultimate goal is everybody wants the community to be safe. The more opportunity we have and they have and the support that we help give them, the safer everyone will be. I’m just thankful to everyone here and so proud of the partnership with the ride organization so thank you.”

Kardashian West has been focusing much of her time on advocating for prison reform. She has also been working with CNN commentator Van Jones and attorney Jessica Jackson. They are the co-founders of #cut50, a national bipartisan advocacy group on criminal-justice reform.

She has been visiting prisons, petitioning governors, and attending meetings at the White House. Last year, the reality star successfully petitioned the president to commute the life sentence of Alice Marie Johnson.

In a recent episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kim said“It’s kind of crazy because I’m learning it all as I go. I spend more time on this than I do anything else. It’s insane but it’s so fun to be around people that are super smart and get it and want the same thing. I think now having gotten so deep in helping Alice [Marie Johnson], I’m really motivated to get to know the law more and fight for people who deserve a second chance like her.”

Kardashian West posted a video to Twitter earlier Thursday. She announced that she would be speaking at the White House.

She said in the video, “I am heading to the White House to speak at the Second Chance Hiring and Re-entry Event. I’m so excited to announce some exciting things.”

She tweeted, “Today, I’m honored to be a part of the announcement. The administration and the private sector are stepping up to create opportunities for these men and women to succeed once home.”

Kanye West, her husband, also appeared at the White House to push prison reforms. He delivered a lengthy speech in the Oval Office last year that left even the president speechless.
