Kim's rapper and fashion designer husband Kanye West is a vocal support of the Trump administration and has been credited for securing African American support for the controversial politician.
Last year, the KKW Beauty founder met with President Trump in the Oval Office to petition for the pardon and release of 63-year-old great-grandmother Alice Marie Johnson who had been imprisoned for a low level drug offense since 1997.
Trump commuted Johnson's life sentence and granted clemency one week later, the sixth time he has done so since taking office, Harper's Bazaar notes.
Attorney and non-profit founder Van Jones told Vogue that Kardashian's appeal for Johnson's release was "the most effective, emotionally intelligent intervention I've ever seen in American politics", Yahoo News reports.
Before speaking at Thursday's event, the reality star sat between Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner who she worked with last year on the passage of the First Step Act.
The First Step Act provides a support framework for second chance hiring, increasing former inmates chances to thrive after leaving prison.
In April, Kim announced her intention to take the California state 'baby bar' in 2022, meaning she will skip the traditional and time-consuming route of going to law school.
According to The Washington Post, California, Vermont, Virginia and Washington do not require a law degree as a prerequisite for taking the bar.
The mother-of-four - who shares daughters North and Chicago and sons Saint and Psalm with Kanye West - started an apprenticeship with a criminal justice law firm in San Francisco during the summer of 2018.
