Meek Mill is among the six individuals that was recognized on Monday, June 10 at the seventh annual McSilver Awards at NYU. The ceremony acknowledges the “Vanguards for Social Justice who are prominent in their fields and unafraid to use their platforms to help create a more equitable and just world.”

As a founding partner and co-chair of the criminal justice reform organization REFORM Alliance, Meek’s own experiences with an unjust legal system have inspired him to provide a voice for the voiceless. His high-profile alliances, including Philadelphia 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin and New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, have helped him raise over $50 million that will be used in their fight to “dramatically reduce the number of people who are needlessly trapped in the system.”
