We saw what Kim Kardashian has done for criminal justice reform, but now Kim is using her platform to bring awareness to the hiring of formerly incarcerated people.
While stopping by the Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, she says:
“I think there’s such a stigma on people hiring formerly incarcerated people.
There’s so many people that are incarcerated for life. For murder, that maybe they were just next to someone, and there was a group of people, and a fight broke out and somebody unfortunately died. But they didn’t even hit the person, didn’t even have a weapon and were serving life.
I would love to hire formerly incarcerated people. And I would love to spread that message that other companies and big companies can do that too.”
I think that this could be huge for people who were formerly incarcerated. Everyone deserves a second chance and Kim is using her platform in a great way to show these companies that everyone who has been to jail isn’t a bad person.
