Rutgers-Camden professors are hosting a forum to discuss poverty in America and in particular Camden.
As I wrote earlier this year, Camden seems to be in worse shape now than ever before. In 2012, Camden was named poorest city in the country as well as the city with the highest crime rate in the country, a title formerly known as the "most dangerous city" in the CQ Press analysis and rankings.
Here is the schedule of events for today's forum: http://www.camden.rutgers.edu/node/13662. The forum will include sociologists from other universities and the Brookings Institute in Washington D.C.
