Philly rapper Meek Mill doesn’t want anyone to get tangled up in the prison system like he was.
Since his release in 2018 he vowed to be dedicated to prison reform.
Alongside Jay Z, they launched REFORM, an initiative that fights to get “illogical laws” changed. Yesterday in Philly, Meek, 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin, CNN’s Van Jones (the CEO of REFORM Alliance), and a few politicians proposed a new legislation to reform the state probation and parole system.
According to a source, “the bill is commendable for several reasons. For starters, it provides hope for people who’ve given up on the system.”
