As a Friend and a retired Baltimore police detective, Debbie B. Ramsey brings a unique perspective to serving her community. “As Quakers, you know, we’re within ourselves, we internalize, and we seek the Light and in doing so we have our quiet time,” she says. “But then at the same time we have to get out there and kick up some dust, you know?”
“I am very, very happy to know that where I worship speaks to many, many aspects of a community that is in need, that is in harm’s way, who are threatened,” Debbie says. “That’s just how we put our faith in action.” In this interview, Debbie discusses her role in shaping Baltimore’s United Efforts community outreach programs.
