By now you know that Meek Mill and Sixers co-owner Michael Rubin spend a lot of time together.

Now they’re joining with Jay-Z and New England Revolution owner Bob Kraft to launch a new criminal justice reform group.

From the Associated Press: 

The Reform Alliance will be led by Van Jones, a CNN host and activist who served as an adviser to former President Barack Obama.

Sixers co-owner Michael Rubin said the group is dedicating $50 million to the effort.

Mill became a symbol for criminal justice reform activists after a judge in Pennsylvania sentenced him to two to four years in prison for minor violations of his probation conditions in a decade-old gun and drug possession case. He spent months in prison before a court ordered him released.

The performer said the Reform initiative “is one of the most important things I’ve ever done in my life” and that he’s speaking “for people who don’t have a voice.”

Good stuff here.
