Oxygen Media is making a two hour documentary that will fall under the true crime category and is meant to capture the efforts made by Kim Kardashian West to free prisoners that have been unfairly incarcerated and are serving long sentences for minor offences. The project will be titled “Kim Kardashian: The Justice Project.”

Kim launched her lobbying career last year after fighting for clemency for Alice Marie Johnson, who served two decades as part of a life sentence without parole for a very minor drug offense. Kardashian met with President Donald Trump, and convinced him to give her clemency. He also signed bipartisan legislation that gives judges more discretion when sentencing in drug-related cases, which is a major step for prisoner rehabilitation efforts.

Since Johnson’s release, Kim has continued working on criminal reform. Last week, she celebrated the release of another inmate with the tweet, “We did it again! Had the best call w/this lovely family & my attorney (Brittany K. Barnett) who just won release for their loved one Jeffrey in Miami. He served 22 years of life sentence for low level drug case. He served too much time but it gives me so much joy to fund this life saving work.”
