Camden – Camden County honors 11 residents for actions that reflect the principles of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr..

Among the county’s 2022 Freedom Award recipients are leaders of nonprofit groups, entrepreneurs, and the mayors of Camden and Cheselhurst. One homage is given posthumously.

The awards, established by the county in 2001, will go to:

Mark Bodroj of Sicklerville, advocate for ending the suicide epidemic among military veterans.

Bodrug, who served two tours in Afghanistan with the Marines, composed memoirs and helped create a play that illustrates the extent of suicide among veterans.

Shirley Conroy From Collingswood, founder of the New Jersey chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.

Conroy, who died in October 2021, “dedicated the last years of her life to advocating for rationale reforms to make our neighborhoods safer and supporting the work of organizations working to address the problem of gun violence in Camden,” the county said in its award announcement.
