Kim Kardashian West’s New Documentary Sheds Her In a Completely Different Light: ‘Kim Went to War For Me’

Kim Kardashian West is often seen as a reality star who doesn’t carry much weight in the real world. However, Kardashian West has been working hard behind the scenes to bring awareness to causes she cares about — specifically, prison reform. Kardashian West recently announced a new documentary, which follows her journey of working to reconfigure the prison system. And it has shed her in a completely new light.

Kim Kardashian West has never been regarded as someone who could change the world

Kardashian West has been a reality star since 2007, but it doesn’t mean she’s been held in high regard in society. Many people suggest the Kardashians are famous for nothing and that they contribute very little to society. However, Kardashian West has been working hard to change the way people see her and to make a difference in the world. She’s recently become very involved with prison reform, and she’s even taken law classes to become more informed.

People often don’t take Kim Kardashian West seriously.

She made headlines for working hard to free Alice Johnson

When Kardashian West heard about Alice Johnson, she knew she wanted to change the system. Johnson was involved in a cocaine trafficking organization back in the 1990s, and a judge sentenced her to life in prison for the crime. However, it was a first time, nonviolent offense, suggesting that Johnson’s sentencing was completely unfair.

When Kardashian West heard about Johnson’s situation, she headed to the White House to make things right. After explaining Johnson’s case to President Donald Trump, he granted her clemency, and Johnson was released. Johnson is featured in Kardashian West’s new documentary. “Kim went to war for me,” Johnson says in the trailer. But Kardashian West doesn’t want her work to stop there.

Kardashian is releasing a new documentary, which sheds light on what she’s trying to do

For years, Kardashian West has been seen by many as someone who brings nothing to the table, but she’s now making it known that she wants to make a difference in people’s lives. Kardashian West recently posted a trailer for her new documentary, “Kim Kardashian West: The Justice Project” where she discussed the mass incarceration problem in the United States.

The trailer appears to highlight the stories of several criminals who believe they have been wrongly imprisoned, and Kardashian West seems to want to shed light on their cases to spark a bigger conversation about prison reform. The documentary shows the work Kardashian West hopes to do to help the criminal justice system, but it also shows that she is much more than just a pretty face and wants to use her platform to do good in the world.

She’s reportedly going to law school to follow in her father’s footsteps

Kardashian West has been taking law classes with the hope of becoming even more knowledgeable in the field she’s working in. Her father, Robert Kardashian, was a prominent lawyer before his passing in 2003. In between launching beauty, fragrance, and shapewear lines, Kardashian West is studying to become as informed as possible with what’s happening in the nation’s prisons. And it’s clear that she’s doing her part to spread the word. “Kim Kardashian West: The Justice Project” airs Sunday, April 5 at 7 p.m. on Oxygen.
