        Kim Kardashian is using her platform to make an impact.

        On Saturday, during a panel for the winter Television Critics Association press tour, the reality star and entrepreneur shared the first trailer for her new documentary, Kim Kardashian West: The Justice Project.

        The two-hour documentary follows Kim as she works on the cases of four people (Dawn Jackson, Alexis Martin, Momolu Stewart and David Sheppard) who believe they were unfairly sentenced

        "There is a mass incarceration problem in the United States," Kim explains in the trailer. "I went into this knowing nothing and then my heart completely opened up."

        Kim's work as a criminal justice reform advocate began in 2018, when she helped convince the White House to grant clemency to Alice Marie Johnson, a great-grandmother who was sentenced to life in prison as a first-time nonviolent offender.

        "I partnered with Oxygen to do the Kim Kardashian West: The Justice Project documentary because there are millions of people impacted by this broken justice system, and I wanted to put faces to these numbers and statistics," Kim explained in a statement. "There are a lot of people who deserve a second chance, but many do not have the resources to make it happen. I want to help elevate these cases to a national level to effect change, and this documentary is an honest depiction of me learning about the system and helping bring tangible results to justice reform."
