A post shared by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on

Kim has become known for raising awareness of social issues in recent years and she doesn't seem to be stopping now. In a string of Tweets posted last night she shared the news about the 60th anniversary of the Santa Susana Field Laboratory Meltdown. The Nuclear site is located just 10 miles from Kim's home in Calabasas.


Santa Susana used to be used for testing nuclear and rocket engines but has been out of use since 2006. It's since been unused and the US government have been promising to clean up the area since 2017, according to her Tweets.

A group of families that live in the area have blamed their children's rare cancers on the toxic site and have been campaigning for years to get it cleaned up

Kim took the opportunity to use her platform for good as she shared a petition run by a local mother to urge the Government to finally begin the clean-up.

The petition has over 600,000 signatures so far!
