Kim Kardashian was one of the 19 invitees to attend the White House listening session about clemency project on Wednesday, September 5.
Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley, said, "The discussion is mainly focused on ways to improve that process to ensure deserving cases receive a fair review."
Kim met President Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka to talk about the clemency process. This process involves extending mercy to a convicted individual. This power is given to the President or the Governor and they can either reduce the severity of the punishment given or release an imprisoned individual.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star will be joining son-in-law Jared Kushner, as well Ja'Ron Smith as special assistants to the President to bring about changes in the current system and try giving a second chance to a felon under special conditions.
The KKWB's makeup lines owner is now advocating for Young, who was sentenced to life for a marijuana and cocaine possession arrest in 2010.
In an interview with Jason Flom's Wrongful Conviction, Kim said, "Yesterday, I had a call with a gentleman that's in prison for a drug case – got life. 'It's so unfair. He's 30 years old. He's been in for almost 10 years.' Kim has already spoken to the Tennessee Judge, Kevin Sharp who convicted Young back then to help release him.
After the meeting, Kim took to Twitter and said, "It started with Ms. Alice, but looking at her and seeing the faces and learning the stories of the men and women I've met inside prisons I knew I couldn't stop at just one. It's time for REAL systemic change."
