Sofia Nelson Speaks on Helping Detroit Parolees Find Jobs

Skadden Fellow Sofia Nelson was featured in a segment by NPR affiliate Michigan Radio about Green Works, which helps Detroit parolees develop specific skills and find jobs ("How Do Detroit's Parolees Fit Into the City's Revitalization?" Aug. 4). Sofia said programs like Green Works are what the city needs right now. "Detroit cannot experience the resurgence we are all hoping for without returning citizens. People with criminal records are heavily represented in Detroit's population and unless we as a community take seriously assisting these people and successfully reentering the workforce, the city will not be able to soar," she said.
