Kim Kardashian West Visits The Scholars Program at the DC Jail

Kim Kardashian West and PJI Director Marc Howard speaking with our students at the DC Jail.

The Prisons and Justice Initiative was incredibly excited to welcome Ms. Kardashian West to the DC Jail on July 23, 2019. Shooting for her upcoming documentary on Oxygen, Kim shared her journey to becoming a criminal justice reform advocate during our weekly Lecture Series. She also took the time to learn more about the Scholar Program directly from our students, later tweeting “All prisons need programs like this…It’s changing lives!”

Kim Kardashian West: The Justice Project, will follow her efforts to “secure freedom for Americans who she believes have been wronged by the justice system.”┬áCheck out Oxygen’s article about the visit, where you can learn more about the documentary and receive updates on its release date.

We are so grateful to Kim Kardashian West, a true criminal justice warrior, for her sincerity and dedication to this issue. The time she took to really engage with our Scholars was unforgettable, and we look forward to future collaborations!
