Kim Kardashian Explains Why She’s So Passionate About Criminal Justice Reform


Kim Kardashian is opening up about her upcoming documentary coming to Oxygen.

While attending the 2019 TCAs Press Tour on Saturday (January 18), the 38-year-old reality star promoted her upcoming documentary, titled Kim Kardashian West: The Justice Project , which follows four specific cases that she feels illuminate greater injustices within the system.

“It can be exhausting, frustrating, but I know that we can make a difference, and so all the criticism in the world will not deter me from what I want to do,” Kim shared via USA Today . “Every case that I choose is really personal to me and a lot of the time it’s from a letter I receive from someone on the inside that just really touches my heart and something that know moves me.”

“But the cases I showcase in this documentary showcase the broken aspect of our system,” Kim added. “I hope that people can be more empathetic and feel that by giving people, like those featured in the ‘Justice Project’ a second chance, there is no danger to our society.”

Kim then went on to explain why she’s so passionate about learning more about the criminal justice system.

“I really do and care and spend 20 hours a week away from my family and my kids (for this),” Kim said. “I literally do this every single day and spend time away from my work, everything else, my family, because once you get so deep into the system…you just can’t give up.”
