Kim Kardashian And Lyft Team Up To Launch Initiative For Ex-Prisoners

During Kim Kardashian’s visit to the White House, the reality star revealed that she teamed up with the ride-sharing company Lyft to help 5,000 inmates once they are released from prison. At the time she shared that the “formerly incarcerated people will be gifted gift cards.”

It was further explained that the initiative will reportedly provide ex-prisoners with gift cards that can be used to help them find work after prison. Sources with knowledge of the partnership tells TMZ that the company has even committed services to get the soon-to-be released inmates to job interviews. The biggest group of prisoners who have been granted release are expected to get out of prison July 19.

In addition to that, Kim who’s also in a partnership with #Cut50 — has been working hard to ensure inmates will be provided housing along with a long-term plan in place to make sure those released from prison will continue to get opportunities for years to come. 

“Everyone wants the community to be safe, and the more opportunity we have and that they have and the support that we help give them, the safer everyone will be.

Thursday’s White House visit was Kim’s second in about a year and we’re sure there’s likely more to come as she continues to take on prison reform.
