Kim Kardashian West’s Justice Project Takes TV
It’s reality, but not the type we’re used to seeing. If you’re looking for an article that’s going to tell you all the juicy gossip around that fight on Keeping Up With The Kardashians this isn’t the one. Kim Kardashian West’s new documentary The Justice Project, centered around righting the wrongs in our “broken system,” aired on Oxygen this past week. The media mogul turned aspiring lawyer showcases raw, real footage of the details of these cases and how she’s working to right the wrong in our system.
It all started with Alice Johnson. This Memphis native was the first case that sparked West’s interest in the criminal justice system. Following her release, West started to receive thousands of letters from people who are incarcerated in our country. These letters were filled with pleas for help in light of their conditions and the circumstances of their cases. The outpour pushed West to follow in the footsteps of her father Robert Kardashian Sr. and begin pursuing law.

The documentary goes into deep detail about the circumstances of these offenders with outstanding sentences. We can see West criticize and work to figure out what she can do to resolve these extensive punishments. One thing that stands out in West’s mission is that she doesn’t want to clear these people of their crimes but rather give them a fitting punishment. I personally respected a lot of the things that she was fighting for inside of the footage. It’s crazy to think that a lot of these people wouldn’t have a chance at getting out of our justice system if West hadn’t stood up and used her platform to change the conversation.
The amount of injustice within our justice system is unprecedented. West can’t solve this issue on her own. It’s our responsibility to be educated about the justice system in our country. You can check out West’s documentary here. Make sure to check it out and let us know what you think below!
