Kim Kardashian isn’t just standing up for Kanye this year, she is also fighting for women in prison.Previously we heard how she was standing up for Cyntoia Brown, a young girl who was locked up at the age of 15 for running away from a child trafficking system. The teen committed a murder trying to escape from a kidnappers house. She has since graduated and jail but not released.
Lately, Kim has been focusing on Alice Marie Johnson. Alice was locked up for making a quick bad decision to sell drugs after losing her job at Fed Ex.

Our sources tell us Kim and her attorney, Shawn Holley, have scheduled a meeting Wednesday with Trump to lobby for a pardon for Johnson … who’s currently serving a life sentence at the Aliceville Correctional Facility in Alabama.
As we reported … KKW and Shawn have been working with Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner for months to free Alice, but now the Prez is getting involved directly.
Although Kim was a Hillary Clinton supporter, we’re told Trump’s on board with helping since Ivanka supports the cause too … and Kanye’s recent public support of him certainly didn’t hurt.
The 62-year-old great-grandma’s case became national news last year when Kim tweeted about it — she was sentenced to life in prison without parole in 1997 on money laundering and drug conspiracy charges … her first offense.
Alice wrote Kim a heartfelt thank-you note for pushing hard for her pardon, and she could have a great reason to write another one soon.
