Alicia Keys calls out Paul Ryan and asks for criminal justice system reform

Posted on

Alicia Keys is eyeing a very interesting choice for her valentine this year: Speaker of the House Paul Ryan. In a video uploaded to Mic.com on Wednesday, Keys jokes that Ryan could “maybe be [her] valentine” if he helps bring criminal justice reform to a House vote.

“Help bring justice reform to a vote, so we can keep families together and reunite those that have been unjustly torn apart by excessive incarceration instead of just getting the help they needed,” Keys asked of Ryan.

The video message was recorded for the social advocacy organization We Are Here that Keys founded. In the video, Keys encourages viewers to send Paul Ryan a Valentine’s Day card in order to get him to help the cause. Supporters can send cards from the We Are Here website.
