At an East Room event attended by Cabinet secretaries, activist and formerly incarcerated people, Kardashian West announced the creation of a new ride-sharing partnership that will give former prisoners gift cards to help them get to and from job interviews, work and family events.

"The one thing I realized that needed so much support, was the reentry of people coming home and seeing the lack of support that really existed", Kardashian said. "I am so excited to announce some exciting things", Kardashian said in a video on social media.

"My heart just completely opened up and I wanted to do more, which is law school in California", she added, later discussing the First Step Act.

Kim Kardashian West tweeted her gratitude toward Ivanka Trump Thursday after speaking at the White House on behalf of those attempting to return to the workforce after prison.

It all happened as the reality TV star met with the US President at the White House.

"When former inmates come home the single most important action we can take is to help them find a really really good job, where they love the job and they're making a lot of money", Trump added.
