341

Kim Kardashian recently participated in a roundtable at the White House with Vice President Kamala Harris to discuss the pardons issued by President Joe Biden, marking another step in Kardashian’s involvement in national criminal justice policy. The discussion took place following the president’s pardons for 11 individuals and the commutation of sentences for five others convicted of non-violent drug offenses.

During the forum, individuals who were pardoned the day before, such as Jason Hernandez, Bobby Darrell Lowery, Jesse Mosley, and Beverly Holcy, shared their justice system experiences. These individuals have since established businesses or non-profits in their communities post-incarceration. Vice President Harris emphasized the importance of redemption in society and providing individuals with the opportunity to earn their way back with the necessary support and resources.

Harris expressed gratitude to Kardashian for her advocacy efforts in criminal justice reform, acknowledging her impactful use of her platform to raise awareness about second chances. Kardashian, in turn, expressed her willingness to assist and raise awareness, expressing her excitement to hear the stories of the pardon recipients.

Furthermore, Harris announced a new rule at the event that removes most restrictions on Small Business Administration loans based on an individual’s criminal record. Mosley, one of the participants, expressed immense gratitude for being one of the recipients of a pardon and shared his feelings of appreciation for being part of the discussion alongside the Vice President and Kim Kardashian.

Kardashian highlighted the importance of sharing personal stories to help individuals who have not experienced the criminal justice system understand the challenges faced when reintegrating into society after serving time in prison.
