The Poet of Poverty is SOLD OUT!
The response from the community has been overwhelming and we are currently over subscribed to the screening of the documentary “The Poet of Poverty” and the following panel discussion with Fr. Michael Doyle and representatives from The Center for Transformation. For those with reservations for the January 21st Poet of Poverty program, please get there by 6:45. We have started a waiting list and would like to start promptly at 7pm. Â The event is free, but donations will be accepted for The Center for Transformation.
We would like to harness the region’s interest in a meaningful connection with Camden by offering regular opportunities to learn and work together.

This is just the start of the ongoing, unique relationship we hope to cultivate with the Waterfront South community in Camden. Â Remember, we are already closely connected, as every toilet flush in Camden County and all of our garbage ends up in this neighborhood. Â As human beings, we have much to gain by meeting and working side by side with our neighbors in Camden.
