Oxygen has released the trailer for her documentary “Kim Kardashian West: The Justice Project,” which sees the media personality declare that “there is a mass incarceration problem in the United States.”

The two-hour documentary, premiering Sunday, April 5, captures Kardashian West as she explores the cases of Dawn Jackson, Alexis Martin, Momolu Stewart and David Sheppard, all of whom she and legal experts believe have been unfairly sentenced.
