Reality star and activist Kim Kardashian West has returned to the White House to promote efforts to help those leaving prison return to the workforce. Kardashian West announced a ride-sharing program to help former prisoners get transportation

"I'm so happy to announce today that we have a ride-share partnership where formerly incarcerated people will be gifted gift cards so that they can get rides to and from job interview, to and from jobs, family members", Kardashian West said.

Coming up to the podium in front of a crowd of about 100 people, Kardashian said she chose to "make a difference" after traveling to prisons and meeting with inmates.

She continued: "And after that I really spent so much time going to different prisons because I really had no connection to anybody on the inside and really just felt like for me, I'm at the place in my life that I wanted to make a difference and just wanted to do the right thing, but I didn't know how or what to do or even really what was going on". Jones, who was also present during the spring White House meeting, told Vogue that Kardashian's appeal to the president was "the most effective, emotionally intelligent intervention that I've ever seen in American politics". Keeping up her track record of Very Good Suits, today's look included a strong-shouldered teal jacket with wide lapels.

Together, they're working to give former inmates accessible transportation options so that they can go to job interviews.

Kardashian later shared on Twitter that Lyft would participate in the program.

Initially seated between Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump, Kardashian, 38, was met with applause after President Trump mentioned the reality star in his opening remarks.

"I just wanted to thank the president for standing behind this issue", she said, turning toward Trump who was looking on beside her.

While it is still believed that creating a market-ready alternative to Android is near impossible, the report says otherwise. For the initial stages, Huawei is said to focus mainly on the budget smartphone segment with its own OS.

Taking to the stage, alongside the president, Kim said it was "a huge honor" to be at the White House before thanking the president for his "compassion" and help.

Johnson was sentenced to life in prison in 1997 for committing a first-time nonviolent drug crime in Memphis.

Kim Kardashian West attended a criminal justice event at the White House on Thursday and unveiled a new ride-sharing partnership for formerly incarcerated people following their re-entry to society. Shortly after Kardashian West's meeting with the president about Johnson, the president commuted the grandmother's sentence.

Reports indicate that Kim Kardashian West will be in attendance.

Kim must also complete 60 college credits and then work as an apprentice at a law firm in San Francisco with the intention to take the Bar Exam in 2022.

Speaking at the event, Mr. Trump said his latest criminal justice proposal would aim to decrease recidivism and ensure that former prisoners are able to experience "the dignity of work".
