Insiders told TMZ that Kardashian went to the California Institution for Women in Corona on Friday afternoon, and was shown the grounds and living accommodations. She then met with 15 women to better understand their daily lives in prison, and what their dreams, plans, and concerns are after they're released.
According to TMZ, Kardashian was there for more than a few hours and came with the idea to jumpstart a program that helps women adapt to life after prison.
Kardashian has recently staked a claim in prison reform. In late May, she met with President Donald Trump to discuss granting Alice Marie Johnson—whom Kardashian had been advocating for since last year—clemency. Kardashian's efforts were a success, as in early June, Trump released Johnson. The 63-year old Johnson had been in an Alabama prison since 1996, serving a life sentence, without the chance for parole, for a first-time, non-violent drug offense.
Later in June, Kardashian turned her attention to another prison reform case, encouraging Governor Edmund “Jerry” Brown of California to take another look at the DNA evidence in the case against death row inmate Kevin Cooper. Cooper currently sits on death row for a quadruple homicide that took place in 1983, but he has always maintained his innocence, and some legal experts are skeptical of his involvement in the murders.
