Meek Mill Receives Social Justice Award at NYU

Meek Mill Receives Social Justice Award at NYU The annual McSilver Awards took place at NYU on June 10.

The ceremony recognizes: "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." Meek was among six people who were recognized for their efforts.

Since being released from prison last year, the 32-year-old rapper has made criminal justice reform a priority.

He is a founding partner and co-chair of REFORM Alliance.

He's raised over $50 million for the cause with the help of Philadelphia 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin and New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft.

The funds will be used in an attempt to "dramatically reduce the number of people who are needlessly trapped in the system." Meek made a statement upon receiving the award.
