In a sneak peek of this week's "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," Kim reveals to sister Kourtney Kardashian and friend Larsa Pippin that she and Kanye plan to take their oldest daughter to the March for Our Lives Rally in Washington, D.C.
The march -- which took place in March of this year -- was a student-led demonstration in support of tighter gun control. The march was inspired by the February mass shooting that occurred at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
"Kanye told me he was taking North to school today, and he was explaining to her that we're gonna go to this march for gun violence in Washington, D.C., and we're gonna take her and how like he grew up and how dangerous the neighborhood was in Chicago," Kim tells Kourt and Larsa in the clip.
She later opens up about the importance of the issue to her husband, specifically, given his rough upbringing.
"Kanye is from Chicago, and he always talks about the gun violence. And with everything that's going on in the world, we just wanted to do something and be a part of something we both really believe in," Kim tells the camera. "If we just speak up and get things done, I think we can change the world for the better."
So ready to March today! Landed in DC w North & Kanye. We stand in solidarity with the survivors of gun violence & students who are calling for action on common sense gun safety laws at #MarchForOurLives around the country @AMarch4OurLives @Everytown
At the time, Kanye tweeted his support for the march's founder, Stoneman Douglas High School student Emma Gonzalez, but her response was likely not what the rapper expected.
After spending days tweeting about his love and support of President Donald Trump, Kanye posted a since-deleted photo of Emma and wrote, "my hero." Emma countered by tweeting a picture of another man she said was her hero: James Shaw Jr., the man who made national news for stepping in to stop another mass shooting at a Waffle House in Nashville.
