On Wednesday, reality star Kim Kardashian took matters into her own hands and posted stories of three women whose sentences were commuted by President Donald Trump, since, as noted by Kardashian, she didn’t “hear much about it in the news.”

“President Trump commuted the sentences of three really deserving women,” she wrote, starting off a series of tweets. “I didn’t hear much about it in the news so I wanted to share with you their stores!”

“I have the pleasure of spending the day with these women today along with [Alice Marie Johnson] who helped to pick these women,” said Kardashian. Johnson had her sentence commuted last year by President Trump, after Kardashian, now a student of law, brought the case to the attention of the White House.

“Crystal Munoz was sentenced to 20 years in prison for conspiracy to posses & distribute marijuana,” Kardashian explained. “She left behind a five month old baby & was pregnant. Crystal was shackled by prison guards during the birth of her second daughter. Her case was highlighted in the First Step Act.”

The celebrity noted, “Crystal[‘s] case was highlighted in the First Step Act which banned the degrading and inhumane treatment of shackling female prisoners during childbirth.”

“Judith Negron was sentenced to 35 years in prison for conspiracy to commit health care fraud,” she continued. “After trial she received the longest sentence ever given to a female for a white collar crime. A mother, she left behind two young sons. This was Judith’s first ever offense.”

“Wardens and staff alike spoke glowingly of the incredible contributions Judith made to the prison while incarcerated,” noted Kardashian.

Kardashian then highlighted the case of Tynice Hall. “Hall was sentenced to 35 years in prison for a first time non violent drug conspiracy,” she wrote. “Her boyfriend at the time used her house for his illegal drug activities. She was only 22 years old when she went to prison and left behind a 3 year old son.”

“Tynice rehabilitated herself and prepared for a future outside of prison by completing numerous classes and becoming certified in various trades,” the 39-year-old added.

The women highlighted by Kardashian made their way to the White House on Wednesday.

“Meet Judith Negron, Crystal Munoz and Tynice Nichole Hall. At the recommendation of [Alice Marie Johnson], [Kim Kardashian], and the [#Cut50] team, these 3 mothers were granted clemency by [Donald Trump] last month and are already using their second chance to pay it forward!” White House advisor and First Daughter Ivanka Trump captioned a photo of the group, which included herself and husband Jared Kushner.

As noted by The Daily Wire in May, Kardashian is funding a legal team that got 17 people out of jail in 90 days, showcasing her seriousness in her new role as a criminal justice reform advocate.

TMZ reports that Kardashian is helping to bankroll a project called ’90 Days of Freedom,’ a legal team that uses provisions outlined in last year’s major criminal justice reform initiative, the First Step Act, to free inmates serving outrageously long prison sentences for minor drug crimes,” The Daily Wire noted. “So far, the program has helped 17 people go free, including “Jamelle Carraway (who served 11 years of a life sentence on a cocaine charge), Eric Balcom (who got life without parole for a drug charge at age 29), and Terrence Byrd (who spent half his life behind bars on drug possession charges),’ Complex reports.”
