THE PEOPLE’S CHAMP?: Kim Kardashian’s Team Reportedly Receives Hundreds Of Letters Per Week From Inmates
08.05.19

She’s reportedly been dubbed “The Princess of Prison Reform.”

When Kim Kardashian announced to the world that she’s been studying behind the scenes to become a lawyer, the reality star was met with resistance from those who brought up her past rise to fame. When she began helping inmates with their cases and aiding in their releases from jail, many didn’t believe she did anything other than open her wallet and throw some cash toward legal fees. However, as time rolls on and her track record has proven naysayers wrong, inmates behind bars couldn’t care less what the public opinion thinks of Kardashian because they just want out of prison.

Thank you for the support @officialdarrylreed 🖤 The backlash Kim is receiving is gravely misplaced. People have to look beyond the spotlight and see that a 63 year old woman is sitting in a human cage set to die there for a drug offense. She has already spent over two decades behind barbed wire, steel and concrete. You don’t have to be an expert in criminal justice to know Ms. Alice does not deserve to spend the rest of her natural life in prison. @kimkardashian stepped up in a major way for our client – everything else is just noise distracting from the real issue of how mass incarceration is burying people alive – devastating families and entire communities. @buriedaliveproject. #freealicejohnson #Repost @officialdarrylreed ・・・ I want to let all my folks know that me and Ms.Alice share the same attorney @msbkb Brittany Barnett who got me & 7 others granted clemency. @kimkardashian reached out to the family months ago and asked what can she do to help. I knew about this kind gesture that she made a while back. Kim is just trying to bring more attention to these unjust sentences. Please share this post so Ms. Alice will not die in prison. @kwales @wallo267 @msbkb @kimkardashian #clemencynow #massincarceration #freemsalice

Kim’s area of focus is on low-level offenses that resulted in lengthy convictions, including many who were arrested, charged, and sent to prison for decades (and even life) on minor drug charges. Kim has partnered with lawyers Brittany K. Barnett and MiAngel Cody of the Decarceration Collective for their “90 days of Freedom” campaign, resulting in the release of 17 inmates. As their work has gained notoriety, they’ve been inundated with calls, letters, and social media messages from inmates or relatives of those incarcerated, asking them to take on their cases.

TMZ reports that inmates refer to her as “The Princess of Prison Reform” and states that Kim combs through each of the stories she receives, one by one, and if there are any that catch her attention, she makes sure that it’s investigated by her team. In an Instagram post from last year, Barnett shared an interview that Kim gave, captioning the clip by writing that people shouldn’t be focused on her spotlight image, but how she’s using it to help others.
