Kim Kardashian West is releasing a documentary about criminal justice reform.

The reality star shared a preview of Kim Kardashian West: The Justice Project on her Instagram account.

“The official trailer for my new documentary is here!” She wrote. “Criminal justice reform is something that’s so important to me, and I can’t wait to share these stories with all of you.”

Her new documentary follows each person’s story, highlighting the circumstances of the actions that changed their lives.

In the clip, Kardashian West gets emotional as she explains: “there is a mass incarceration problem in the United States. I went into this knowing nothing, and then my heart completely opened up.”

She continues: “People deserve a second chance.”

The reality TV star goes on to explain how she began receiving letters from various inmates, telling her “the circumstances of their lives”.

This attention was presumably after she played a role in Alice Marie Johnson being released from prison in June 2018, who was then serving a life sentence for a non-violent drug charge.

Kardashian West fought for her case and even visited Donald Trump in the White House to argue for her release, who then eventually granted the 63-year-old clemency.

In the documentary, 39-year-old attempts to “secure freedom for Americans who she believes have been wronged by the justice system”, including Dawn Jackson, Alexis Martin, Momolu Stewart and David Sheppard.

Kim Kardashian West: The Justice Project will air on US television channel Oxygen on 5 April this year.
