Kim Kardashian Asks For Assistance w/ Finding Post Prison Employment
Kim Kardashian-West is continuing her fight with assisting incarcerated inmates with finding employment post prison sentence. The ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s’ reality star recently partnered with the ride share company Lyft to help with transportation. On Monday, the beauty mogul announced her next step with her advocacy. She writes,
“Since the passage of the First Step Act in December, I’ve been speaking with people coming home from prison and learning about the challenges they are facing. While I have been able to offer support to some of the individuals I have met, the obstacles to success are an everyday struggle for thousands and more needs to be done. It was an honor to take part in the announcement that the administration and private sector will be stepping up to create opportunities for these men and women to succeed once home.”
She continues, announcing her partnership with Lyft.
“I’m proud to partner on this initiative with Lyft , a company with a history of taking bold action to do what’s right for our community. Thank you for providing ride share credits to formally incarcerated people when they come home.”
Kim is asking companies to step up to help those in need of communication with future employers.
If there are any other companies who would like to step up, we would welcome the support. At the moment we have a particular need for cell phones and minutes so that these people can communicate with potential employers and with their loved ones.
After announcing, Kim’s sisters and close friends took to her comments to congratulate her on her major accomplishment. KUWTK’s star, Khloe Kardashian writes,
“You are so beyond beautiful inside and out!!! Top dog.”
As previously reported, the KKW founder commended Trump’s backing for the Second Chance program, calling it “magic” as she revealed the program joined forces with ridesharing service Lyft to provide gift cards for released prisoners so they could have transportation to job interviews.
Kardashian then shared her journey in her fight for criminal reform. She said,
“My whole journey with criminal justice reform started about a year ago when I came to see the president after speaking to Ivanka and Jared who really fought for me to get here and I pled the case of Alice Johnson who the president granted clemency to. And after that I really spent so much time going to different prisons because I really had no connection to anybody on the inside and really just felt like for me, I’m at the place in my life that I wanted to make a difference and just wanted to do the right thing, but I didn’t know how or what to do even really what was going on.”
