Ja Rule Hosts Mother’s Day Luncheon For Families Affected By Criminal Justice System

Rapper Ja Rule partnered with the REFORM Alliance and The Ladies of Hope Ministries to put on a special Mother’s Day luncheon on May 7 for 40 families who have been impacted by the criminal justice system. Forty mothers and their children were treated to a three-hour afternoon lunch hosted by Ja Rule at the midtown New York City hotspot, Sei Less. “For something like this for mothers who have been through incarceration, I can relate to that and it’s close to my heart, so to be a part of this is special to me,” Ja Rule told Billboard about the event. “It’s a very hard thing for a mom to be incarcerated and have children and to be able to navigate that. It’s very difficult, so I empathize with them in a lot of ways.” (Billboard)
