Kim Kardashian and Malika Haqq Visit Prison to Raise Awareness, “I Want to Teach This to My Boys”
Kim Kardashian continued her dedicated journey in prison reform in a recent Keeping Up With the Kardashians episode. She visited Pelican Bay Prison in Northern California with Malika Haqq. The reality star, aged 43, and her friend Haqq, 40, were on a mission to raise awareness about prison reforms in the state, as reported by US Weekly.
Kim's relentless commitment shed light on her dedication to uplifting the marginalized through her celebrity status. Khloe Kardashian, Kim's younger sister, encouraged her move and even wished to watch her run for the presidential election. Khloe shared in a confession, "I just feel like Kim can tell me tomorrow she’s running for president, and I’m like, 'All right, girl, do your thing.' For Kim, it’s just like another day." The family's acceptance and encouragement have certainly shed light on the Kardashian-Jenner clan's immense support for each other.
Kim confessed during the episode to her friend Haqq that prisons are supposed to be correctional places and not torture houses for inmates. She highlighted this by saying, "Malika always asks me about the work that I do, and she’s like a really empathetic person, and I think that she would have a lot to say and has a great platform. And I’m just grateful that a new group of people gets to hear and be inspired," as she expressed her gratitude.
