The Can-Do Foundation, which advocates shorter sentences for non-violent drug offenders, put Johnson at the top of its list of federal prisoners most deserving of a presidential commutation.

Amy Povah, a former federal inmate who started the Can-Do Foundation after President Clinton commuted her sentence in 2000, said Johnson is one of many who deserve presidential mercy.

“But today is about Alice Johnson, and we are elated that Kim Kardashian has done what others have not,” she said. “She has used her celebrity status to lift up a specific case of injustice and give Alice the spotlight her case deserves. Hopefully, there will be more to come in the future.”
