Miguel Rubert, Camden
2023 Camden County MLK Freedom Medal Nominee

Miguel Rubert lives and breathes for the City of Camden. His lifelong devotion to advocacy and community service first took root in childhood, thanks to the example set by clergy at his home parish, Holy Name Roman Catholic Church. In his youth, Miguel was especially well-known for his informal street ministry: walking around the neighborhood, offering hugs, and sharing prayers with members of the community. His sincere passion for working and building within his community always shines through in whatever he does.

The community organizations Miguel has worked with over the years include Holy Name Parish, the Hispanic Youth Council of Camden, the Guadalupe Family Services of Camden, the Bridge Program, and several Camden City Elementary Schools.
