Tom's next guest is Deborah Ramsey. She’s a former detective with the Baltimore City Police Department. In 2016, she was named an Open Society Institute Community Fellow. In 2015, the year of the riots and uprising in Baltimore that followed the funeral of Freddie Gray, she began a program for children in the Penn North neighborhood, called Unified Efforts.

Now, she is looking to expand that program with a permanent home in the neighborhood.
