Kim Kardashian West has been spending more time focusing on law and seeking justice for many people who she believes is wrongfully sentenced. This time, she’s taking everyone with her to follow her on the journey.
On Jan. 19, Kardashian West took to Instagram to announce the new two-hour documentary, Kim Kardashian West: The Justice Project, which airs April 5 at 7 P.M. on Oxygen.
The documentary focuses on finding justice for Dawn Jackson, Alexis Martin, Momolu Stewart and David Sheppard. She takes us with her as she visits the inmates in jail to hear their stories, the process of gathering information and the meetings to go with it.
In the trailer for The Justice Project, Kim touches on mass incarceration in America and how she felt that it wasn’t fair for people to be sentenced without a chance or the right trial. She also expressed how she went into seeking justice for one person, not knowing she was going to become completely invested in it later on. The clip also showed how people began to reach out to her through letters to ask for help.
According to Variety, Kim told sources, “There are a lot of people who deserve a second chance, but many do not have the resources to make it happen,” she said. “I want to help elevate these cases to a national level to effect change, and this documentary is an honest depiction of me learning about the system and helping bring tangible results to justice reform.”
She also expressed that showing these stories and people would help show that mass incarceration is real.
