It means a lot to me that they're super supportive."
The 39-year-old star urged her fans to join her in her campaign to have 51-year-old Rodney Reed released from prison, where he is currently on death row in Texas after being convicted of raping and killing a woman in 1996, an allegation he not only denies but insists he has evidence to prove his innocence.
Kim told E! News: "Seeing everyone rally around cases like Rodney Reed's case that I'm so passionate about and getting people from both sides of the aisle to really come together and support something like a stay of ex ecution from the governor of Texas...
"I'm so proud that the right and the left are working together and I'm proud that the fans are following this journey with me."
The KKW Beauty mogul - who has four children with husband Kanye West - has been working with a number of prisoners recently, including successfully petitioning US President Donald Trump to commute the life sentence of non-violent drug offender Alice Marie Johnson.
And her work on prison reform even earned her the Women Leadership in Law Award along with her lawyer Shawn Holley, after they both worked on Alice's case, which led to the First Step Act being passed.
The pair were handed their awards, which are sponsored by The California Lawyer and the Daily Journal, at a conference in Beverly Hills in May.
