Since Meek Mill’s release from prison earlier this year, he has has been become a huge advocate for prison reform and criminal injustice. Now he’s taking his work a step further and partnering with a major brand to make a major statement!
Puma just launched its new #REFORM campaign meant to shed light on social issues and partnered with the “Dreams And Nightmares” rapper. To kick off the launch of the Clyde Court Disrupt in Philadelphia, Meek made an appearance at Foot Locker’s PumaLab. During his visit he did everything from ringing up customer purchases at the register to shooting some hoops with fans. Meek is just one of tons of celebrities making strides toward justice reform, French Montana just recently bailed a Bronx woman out of jail who was unable to post bail on her own and Kim Kardashian paid a visit to the white house. Tuesday was the 50 year anniversary of when Olympian Tommie Smith raised his fist for equal rights. Puma said to “Raise your fist and post a photo” , for every fist raised and photo shared, they will donate $1 up to $100,000 to ACLU. Check out the tweets below:
