Kim Kardashian and Tristan Thompson are teaming up to give back in the spirit of Thanksgiving.
Ahead of the holiday, the Kardashians star and the Chicago Bulls player—who shares two children with ex Khloe Kardashian—attended a dinner for detainees at Camp Kilpatrick, the California juvenile detention center that inspired the 2006 film Gridiron Gang. As seen in Instagram photos shared by Kim on Nov. 24, the two chatted with a group of teens, whose faces were blurred by the reality star, before sitting down for a meal with the group.
"This year I'm really thankful for the people I have met in all of the prisons around the country," the SKIMS mogul wrote in the caption. "This week @realtristan13 and I had an inspiring Friendsgiving dinner with the young men incarcerated at Camp Kilpatrick. These young men have earned their way to this model camp in Malibu for great behavior."
Praising her dinner companions for making "huge changes in their life," Kim continued, "My favorite part at our dinner was going around the table and hearing what their dreams and aspirations are. I can't wait to see them all come true."
She added, "Happy Thanksgiving to all of the men and women that are away from their families this year."
Kim is a vocal supporter for criminal justice reform in the past. During a 2020 panel discussion for her documentary special Kim Kardashian West: The Justice Project, the 42-year-old that she's found her calling through advocacy work, explaining, "I don't see how I could just say no to someone that really needs help if I know that I can help them."
In March, she joined members from The Anti-Recidivism Coalition, an organization working to end mass incarceration in California, for a daytime hike that ended with snacks and hot chocolate provided by her four children: North, 9, Saint, 6, Chicago, 4, and Psalm, 3.
"6AM hike with formerly incarcerated members and staff of @antirecidivismcoalition," she wrote on Instagram Story at the time. "They are now university students, film students, firefighters, artists, now giving back to their community."
Kim continued, "I love hearing their stories- from life sentences to what life is like now. I'm so proud of them and can't wait to hike more!"
