(AllHipHop News) Rapper Meek Mill continues to ride high after he was party to the launch of a powerful coalition called REFORM. The rapper recently proclaimed that it is "time to stand together and do better!"
Jay-Z and Meek Mill announced a powerful coalition of social justice warriors to combat inequities in the the system and criminal justice reform. The organization is called REFORM. Specifically, Philadelphia 76ers co-owner Micheal Rubin outlined the goal of REFORM. "Our goal is simple - Get 1 million people out of the criminal justice system," he said. "After witnessing the injustices that took place with @meekmill - it was a complete wake up call. It’s time to change a broken system starting TODAY. Proud to be on this team! #Reform #FightDifferent."
Van Jones, the political commentator, will be the CEO of REFORM. He will be joined by Rubin, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, Brooklyn Nets co-owner Clara Wu Tsai and others. The coalition have banned together to pour $50 million to launch REFORM, then deploy those funds to help those ensnared in the criminal justice system.
Meek Mill's full role is not well-known but he may be the face of the movement, as his legal quandary in Pennsylvania continues to play out.
The rapper also announced a tour recently that is certain to be a loud speaker for the efforts of the REFORM Coalition.
Jay-Z has been on a roll for the last few years.
The mogul has put out the Trayvon Martin documentary series Rest In Power and his Kalief Browder documentary Time, among some politically charged lyrical outings.
