From October 2017-April 2018, Meek Mill was incarcerated because a Philly judge felt that he violated his probation for simply popping wheelies on a motorcycle in New York. Since he got out, he’s been vocal in using his platform to address injustices in the criminal justice system along with black men and other minorities being targeted.
Meek said that a huge announcement would come today. He took to social media to say that he partnered with criminal justice reform organization REFORM in order to bring about the change that’s needed to the system. Joining Meek are Jay Z, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, former Barack Obama advisor and CNN analyst Van Jones, and Brooklyn Nets Co-Owner Clara Wu Tsai.
REFORM’s bio on Instagram is “Reforming the criminal justice system by changing laws and policies while changing hearts and minds. #REFORM #FightDifferent” Salute to Meek Mill, Jay Z, Van Jones, and Clara Wu Tsai for taking the initiative to try to bring positive change. The system mostly targets black men and other minorities and are more likely to be incarcerated than white males. Check out REFORM’s announcement below.
