Not only is prison reform at the top of the Kim Kardashian to-do list, it’s now aiming at abolishing the death penalty in California.

“Over the past year I have plunged into the study of the criminal justice system,” said Kardashian on Tuesday. “I visited prisons, met with former prisoners and helped in cases of unfair treatment, including two cases of the death penalty.”

A reality TV star says she met with California Governor Gavin Newsom and supports his decision to abolish the death penalty in the state. On Wednesday, Governor Newsom announced that he was abolishing the death penalty, granting a reprieve of approximately 737 prisoners sentenced to death.

“Racial prejudice and injustice permeate the entire justice system, but especially with regard to the death penalty,” she added. “And we should not accept the risk that an innocent person could be executed. I hope that we will be able to turn to the best solutions, which will be more focused on healing the victims of injuries and giving priority to justice. ”
