Each year approximately 600,000 incarcerated Men and Women are released from American correctional facilities.

DeLeon. A highly respected and veteran jurist in the Criminal Division of Philadelphia’s Municipal Court, Judge DeLeon is the architect of OPERATION FRESH START™. Judge DeLeon will explore a number of components of OPERATION FRESH START™, which include, but are not limited to the Mayor’s Mentorship Initiative, the Goldman Sachs Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Initiative and the German Workforce Skills Initiative– initiatives which draw a straight line to eradicating recidivism, creating economic sustainability, and renewing prosperity in communities throughout the United States.

Real estate developers are transforming an area between Market and Chestnut Streets spanning from 11th to 12th Streets once considered the epicenter of Philadelphia into East Market, a towering and expansive structure which will be home to residential units, restaurants, retail outlets, and office space. Looking westward, a cluster of gleaming glass and steel skyscrapers which rise above the end of the Walnut Street Bridge and which appear to obfuscate the line of demarcation between the City of Philadelphia’s downtown business district, University City, and the neighborhoods surrounding Drexel University and the University of Pennsylvania come into view ..

It was spearheaded by an undergraduate female student, Ms. Michelle Roopnarine, and featured Dr. John Gedeon of the University's Office of Planning and Development; Ramia Coleman, the Chairman of the all-male Hall of Residence on campus; and Jonathan St. Louis-Nahous, the Guild of Students' Representative for Part-time and Evening Students.
