Incidents like these have people calling for action.

The United Black Clergy held a forum to stop the rash of violence in Pasadena.

Community members and faith leaders talked about the recent events at the two schools and the history of racism in the area.

Hoping to work together to keep racism out of their schools and communities as a whole.

"Someone needed to say something about the racial tone that has been happening at the High School and now we know is at the Middle School. When we gather here we want again that voice to be heard," said Apostle Larry Lee Thomas, President of The United Black Clergy.

"There will be an end to it. The question is when will it stop, It's not ever body, it's not ever body that loves in Pasadena. That small group is causing havoc for many of us who live here," said Jacquline Boone Allsup, NAACP Anne Arundel County.

The focus of the United Black Clergy of Anne Arundel County is to bring awareness and a voice to the community.

Empowering them to solve issues and hold elected officials accountable.
