Kim Kardashian spoke about her criminal justice reform work while chatting with Jenna Bush Hager for a “Today” interview.
Kardashian, who is mom to North, 6, Saint, 3, Chicago, 1, and Psalm, six months, insisted that her work goes hand-in-hand with her entrance into parenthood.
She said, “When you become a mom, you become so protective. You want to, hopefully, make their world the most perfect place ever. And ours obviously isn’t. And I definitely see how, especially, like, black men, are treated in this country, still differently. And I’m raising two black men and so I want to make sure that my world and their world is as a safe and as fair as possible.
“It’s just been such a journey that I didn’t ever imagine I would be on. But I’m so glad that I am. And I just love that we’ve been able to just get a lot of work done and I just don’t want to stop that.”
Kardashian also spoke about her work with death-row inmate Rodney Reed, whose scheduled execution was recently halted.
The beauty mogul was with Reed when he heard the news.
She shared, “It was just this overwhelming sigh of relief and hope that really filled the room. It was emotional. It was extremely emotional, and he said, ‘Praise Jesus’… I could just feel his soul when he said that.”
